JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Florida Highway Patrol said it is monitoring the weather and considering placing more patrols on the road to monitor road conditions.
Gina Busscher with the Florida Department of Transportation said they have sand and bridge crews on standby in case of ice.
“We have crews that are on call, including bridge crews that will be on call, especially tonight when some of the worst weather is supposed to move into the area,” said Busscher.
Capt. Keith Gaston with FHP said road and bridge conditions should be fine.
“The bridges with the concrete decking, I don't think we'll have any problem,” said Gaston.
In addition to having sand trucks on standby throughout the city, FDOT has a plan for Jacksonville’s moveable bridges.
“We're already in an operation where they will open and close it at night every two hours to make sure that it doesn't freeze up, the bridge parts don't freeze up,” said Busscher.
Officials from FDOT and FHP said they're in constant communication.
