Transportation department monitoring road conditions

FDOT’s winter weather plan has been developed to keep Florida’s highway system safe and operational in all types of weather conditions.

Motorists may notice an increased number of FDOT vehicles on state routes as maintenance and operations staff respond to winter weather conditions. If icy conditions are detected, FDOT crews will deploy various tankers, bridge deck sprayers and other equipment to apply anti-icing products on bridges and overpasses to prevent ice from bonding to the pavement surface.
