    Hurricane Sally State Road Advisory – Number 11
     

    Chipley – The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is providing an update on state road and bridge closures and restrictions in Northwest Florida due to Hurricane Sally.

     

    Escambia County

    •        The Pensacola Bay Bridge on U.S. 98 is closed to all traffic.
    •        State Road (S.R.) 99 from Mobile Highway to Nine Mile Road is closed due to trees/power lines on the road.
    •        Northbound State Road (S.R.) 99 at Beulah Church Road is closed due to flooding/erosion.

     

    Jackson County

    ·       S.R. 166 (Caverns Road) from Russell Road to S.R. 71 is closed due to flooding. 

    •        The outside eastbound lane of U.S. 90 from east of the Chipola River Bridge to Old U.S. Road is closed due to shoulder erosion.

     

    Santa Rosa County

    •        Garcon Point Bridge (S.R. 281) traffic restrictions have been lifted and is open to all traffic.
    •        The outside eastbound lane of U.S. 90 from the Escambia County Line to Bass Hole Cove Bridge is closed due to shoulder erosion.
    •        S.R. 89 is closed at the Alabama State line due to road damage in Alabama.
     
    Motorists are encouraged to monitor weather reports and road conditions and to be on the lookout for flooded roads. If the road ahead is flooded, turn around and find an alternate route. Flooded roads may hide the fact that the roadway is washed out underneath and as little as six inches of rushing water can force your car off the road.
