Bay County has updated their plan for bridge traffic during inclement weather. At 40 mph of sustained winds, off-base law enforcement will evaluate bridges and will adjust traffic as required.
This may involve:
- No change
- Restricting the use of outer lanes so traffic can continue
- Closing the bridges if conditions become too dangerous
Be advised that conditions can change at a moment's notice, giving little to no warning that the bridges will close.
