Florida State Roads Repeatedly Open, Close For Smoke

ORLANDO, Florida – Drivers traveling to the Orlando theme parks or the Space Coast beaches and cruise ships will have to keep alternate routes in mind to get to their Spring Break destinations if they were planning on using the Beachline. That’s because State Roads 528, 50, and 407 open and close through the last few days due to smoke conditions.


Last week, Gov. Rick Scott declared a state of emergency following increased wildfires across the state. The Keetch-Byram Drought Index currently averages in the 500-549 range in Brevard County on a scale of 750.

Below is the Florida Highway Patrol’s latest updates on Central Florida road closures:
