Causeways Will Not Close Before the Storm
Once the storm is over, causeways will be closed until they can be inspected and deemed safe by Florida Department of Transportation officials. Please be patient -- it takes time for inspectors to assess all of Brevard’s seven causeways.
The status of causeway openings will be updated by Brevard County Emergency Management on Facebook and Twitter and text message to those who have signed up to receive text messages.
