In preparation for Hurricane Ian, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), in coordination with the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG), will begin locking down state drawbridges beginning today, Sept. 27 at 12 p.m. in Martin, St. Lucie and Palm Beach Counties.
The bridges will be closed to marine navigation once lockdowns are complete and will remain closed for the duration of severe weather and until the drawbridges and waterways can be assessed for damages. Bridges will remain open to vehicular traffic.
