Smokey road slows traffic

Motorists travel West Grover Cleveland Boulevard Thursday morning through thick smoke caused by a prescribed burn in the Homosassa area. Several miles of County Road 491 re-opened in the past 15 minutes, but the sheriff's office encourages motorists to proceed with caution while traveling through the area as conditions still pose a hazard to motorists' visibility. Several miles of roadway were closed for several hours this morning because of zero visibility due to a controlled burn.
