I-75 signage on Payne’s Prairie still months away

By

Many Gator football fans will be passing through Paynes Prairie this weekend while making their way to Gainesville for the first game of the season. That section of I-75 is the same area where several people lost their lives in a series of crashes in late January because of dense smoke from a nearby wildfire. Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Alexys Martinez reports on what’s being done to prevent a repeat of this tragedy.
