Will the causeways close before the storm hits?

Causeways DO NOT close prior to a storms arrival.  Residents are provided every opportunity to evacuate.  However, it is unsafe to cross causeways in high winds.  After the storm has passed, causeways will close until it has been inspected for safety by the Florida Department of Transportation.  This is why it is very important to remain off the roadways immediately following a storm, to give the proper authorities time to clear and inspect the roadways so they are safe for travel.
