The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has closed State Road 77 at Blue Lake just south of I-10 in Washington County due to flooding.
Motorists should use the following detour:
The FDOT said several roads have water crossing the road for a short period of time and then receding. Signs are posted and the roads are being monitored, the FDOT said.
Motorists are reminded to be watchful of other drivers and road conditions and to be on the lookout for flooded roads. If the road ahead is flooded, turn around and find an alternate route. Flooded roads may hide the fact that the roadway is washed out underneath and as little as six inches of rushing water can force your car off the road, the FDOT said.
