    We are traveling to Pensacola from Atlanta on Friday, December 18, 2009. We usually cut through Atmore off of 65 South over to Hwy. 29 and the into Pensacola. Can anyone tell me if these roads are now open.

    I spoke to the Florida State Road Dept. late this afternoon and at that time they said they were monitoring the Jay Bridge on Hwy 4 but was not planning to close it. Atleast, that was the report about 4pm.

    Is the bridge on hwy 4 between Jay and Century going to close?

  7. Angela Rowell on December 15th, 2009 4:17 pm

    I’ve just been to Bay Minette and now home from there via Hwy 31 and at this time it is not closed. Closure may be on Dyas Rd itself off of the highway but as of 30 min. ago there was no issue traveling to Bay Minette. That may all change as the rain continues, however.

    Perdido Resident — I’ve been told they will have to wait for the water to go down before they can do a complete assessment of the Hwy 31 bridge between Atmore and Bay Minette.

    Does anyone know how bad the damage to the bridge between Atmore and Bay Minette is?

    Thanks William. You have been most helpful today.

    > I am not that familiar with this area and I need to get to Bay Minette from Jay.

    East Hwy 4 from Jay to Century. Turn left (south) on Hwy 29 in Century. Turn right on West Highway 4. Highway 4 to Highway 97. Turn right on Highway 97 to Atmore. Continue in Atmore on Hwy 21 to I-65. Take I-65 south to the Bay Minette exit.

    I am not that familiar with this area and I need to get to Bay Minette from Jay. Could someone please let me know how to go?

    Vanessa — As of 12:45, the twin bridges were open.

  15. Vanessa on December 15th, 2009 12:44 pm

    Does anyone know if the twin bridges between Brewton and Flomaton have been closed?

  16. NHS person on December 15th, 2009 12:24 pm

    thanks William–u do a great job

  17. William on December 15th, 2009 12:15 pm

    Highway 4 is not closing anytime soon. But as the river reaches crest in 24-36 hours, I’m told it will flood the Santa Rosa side.

  18. NHS person on December 15th, 2009 12:13 pm

    Good updates—I heard hwy 4 to jay was closing, all school’s in north part of the county should let out early

  19. Elizabeth on December 15th, 2009 11:50 am

    Rumor has it that Hwy 4 going toward Jay is going to close. Anyone heard anything on that?
