  • Florida and fires.

    Okay, so basically I was uberly shocked yesterday to see they were closing I-95 regularly (seemingly) for the past couple days for the fires. This concerns me greatly because a 4am to 9am shutdown could greatly effect my trip to WDW Saturday ( I should be in that are 6-7am).

    So! I need to know that if the fires around New Symrna are shutting down I-95 in Daytona...is this shutdown before or after the I-4 junction? Has anything between I-4 and Jacksonville been shut down regularly due to these fires?

    And, if it is shutdown, looking at a map it seems I could get on US-17 South after Jacksonville and take that to I-4...can any of you Floridians confirm that?

    I ask because the news I get here on the fires is just what is written on the 'net. Maybe some of you closer to the action (hopefully not too close) can share some better info.

    :beg: I fear for my trip.

    they shut down areas of 1-4 earlier this week because of brush fires. there was a fire almost at the front gates of seaworld and that area is east of disneyworld. I haven't heard that I-95 has been closed today at least. unfortunately it's a day by day situation depending on where fires show up.

      Sorry, I just couldn't resist. Being on the other coast, I've never heard of I-95, and I don't think it exists.

                The other day they shut down part of I-75 near Gibsonton (south of Tampa) for awhile ebcause of a brush fire that jumped the median. But then later that night they opened part of the highway again. But then it rained pretty good in the area yesterday morning (not sure what it did in Orlando), so I'm hoping that particular fire is out now.

                I'm just hoping I-4 between Tampa & Orlando will be fine next Friday when I head up that way.
