Treasure Coast - Tuesday November 8, 2022: The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), in coordination with the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG), has begun to lock down state drawbridges in Broward, Palm Beach, Martin, and St. Lucie 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.

Mariners are encouraged to frequently check the USCG Notice to Mariners for updates and additional information at Sector Miami, https://homeport.uscg.mil/port-directory/miami.
