Please allow yourself a few extra minutes of drivetime if entering and exiting the island on the north end. Police continue to reroute both north and southbound traffic in the area of Whitney Plaza (6800 Block of Gulf of Mexico Drive) as a result of a down tree and nearby effected powerlines/poles. FPL has also reported 1,394 customers remain without power and have an estimated time of 8:15pm for it to be restored. FPL crews are working diligently to get GMD reopened and power restored. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience. We will continue to update you with any information received.
