Majority of County Roads are Open and Accessible

Hillsborough County, Fla. (Sept. 11, 2017) - Hillsborough County has completed initial damage assessments for roadways accessibility and safety. While some downed trees and power lines, and minor flooding remain, the majority of roadways in the County are open.

As residents get back on the road, they are urged to exercise caution and follow a few simple tips:

  • Treat non-functioning traffic signals as a four-way stop.
  • Observe all barricades and detours. They are there for your protection.
  • Don't drive through moving or standing water. Water that is 2 feet deep can disable most vehicles.
  • Watch for workers clearing debris, and follow all directional instructions and detour signs.

Residents can call (813) 272-5900 to report flooding and road problems or to request additional information.
