Road conditions are continuing to deteriorate.
Gulf Breeze Police Department has closed Three Mile Bridge due to an accident and ice on the bridge.
There are multi-vehicle crashes on I-10 at Blackwater Bridge. Both lanes are currently closed.
Santa Rosa County Emergency Management Officials are asking everyone to stay off the roads as there are dangerous conditions present throughout our county. If you choose to drive you are endangering yourself, other citizens and public safety agencies.
Residents should be aware:
· Response times for public safety agencies will be delayed due to the frigid weather conditions. Not only do they have increased call volumes they must drive in the same deteriorated road conditions present throughout the county. They must also use extreme caution on the scene as ground conditions can cause fall injuries to responders.
· There are ice laden tree limbs falling in roadways and hanging low enough to hit vehicles. Night driving will be very hazardous.
· Road & Bridge crews are unable to respond to road issues in the northern portions of the county due to road conditions. As soon as they can safely get on the roads they will be out placing barricades and sanding iced bridges. For central and southern portions of the county the supervisor will make a determination if they will respond to issues.
