FDOT: “Floridians that are traveling should avoid the area if possible.”
“The Santa Fe River under Interstate 75 has risen 15 feet in the past 36 hours because of rainfall from Hurricane Irma, prompting concerns that the interstate may have to be shut down.”
If you have family and friends heading south let them know.
I-75, US-441 and other highways that cross the Santa Fe river most likely will be closed.
The Santa Fe is the county line with Alachua, Columbia and Gilchrist counties here in north Florida.
It is to rise at historic levels.
I-75 is beyond capacity as of now it is at a crawl. I truly feel sorry for anyone on I-75 . This is going to plug all the other corridors up.
