Bridge Status

ICW / Thomas J Shave Jr Bridge – Open

Nassau Sound – Open

During high wind events such as hurricanes, bridge closures are possible for safety reasons. Bridges, connecting Amelia Island to the mainland are closely monitored and will be shut down when sustained winds are greater than 39 mph. Bridges will be reopened when sustained winds drop below 39mph. Should there be significant impact to the bridge from surge, waves or debris that could affect the structural integrity of a bridge it will remain closed until inspected by a FDOT Engineer.

Bridge closures are usually done quickly with little advanced notice. No exceptions are made, all traffic is stopped from crossing, because of safety considerations.
