Florida DOT: I-75 Will Remain Open

Today, the Florida Department of Transportation announced that I-75 will remain open, as flood waters have been receding on the Santa Fe River.

As of this morning, FDOT engineers and state meteorologists do not believe that the Santa Fe River will reach a level to make the interstate unsafe.

On Wednesday, FDOT and the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles announced that due to unprecedented flooding of the Santa Fe River, there was a potential for I-75 to close for motorist safety.

Because of high water levels of the Santa Fe River, US 41 and US 27 remain closed. Once these highways are safe, they will be reopened to motorists.

FDOT and FLHSMV have staff monitoring the bridges that may be impacted by the flooding 24/7. If the river rises to an unsafe level, the bridge will be impassable both northbound and southbound, and would be closed immediately. Floridians that are traveling should avoid the area if possible.

If required to be in the area, the Florida Department of Transportation is actively working with WAZE, Google Maps, the Georgia Department of Transportation and other transportation
industry partners to communicate the potential reroutes to the public.
