A truck interrupted work on Thursday on the Halls River Bridge in Homosassa.

For the majority of the day, the construction-related accident made the bridge completely impassable.

The Citrus County Sheriff's Office had to use other resources, such as launching boats from the fire departments, to ensure emergency services were available to those in need. Citrus County Road Maintenance and the construction company worked together to stabilize the incident and return travel to the bridge as quickly as possible.

No injuries were reported in the accident.

Due to drainage construction work, traffic has been shifted on U.S. 19 (Suncoast Boulevard) near West Homosassa Trail.

As a result, the southbound US 19 left turn onto eastbound Homosassa Trail is now temporarily closed.

Homosassa Trail on the west side of US 19 is also temporarily closed to all traffic. Drivers going to the shopping plaza on the west side of US 19 need to use one of the entrances to the parking lot that is north of Homosassa Trail.

The temporary closures and detour will be in place for approximately two weeks, weather permitting.
