Smoke from a controlled burn reduced visibility to only 50 feet in some spots.
This is the second time in two days FHP closed down the same stretch of road due to smoky conditions.
On Thursday, FHP shut down I-95 later in the morning but on Friday it appears they are shutting down the road earlier as an extra precaution.
