Road Closed

Road Closed
NW 46 Lane -  Fowlers Bluff

April 29, 2014

The Levy County Sheriff’s Office is notifying citizens that NW 46th Lane, the main entrance to Fowlers Bluff, at the intersection of NW 152 Ave., has been closed to vehicular traffic. As the Suwannee River continues to rise above flood level, this road has been affected. Currently there is approximately 8” of water covering the road. Vehicular traffic will be restricted to residents only as they attempt to protect their properties from the rising water.

A message board will be placed at the intersection of NW 46th Lane and CR 347 alerting travelers of this closure. On-lookers are asked to avoid this area of Levy County as the wake produced by their vehicles will cause damage to the homes located along this road. Additionally, traveling on flooded roadways places the driver and any occupants of the vehicle in unnecessary danger.

Any questions regarding the current conditions of the Suwannee River in and around Levy County can be answered by visiting the Levy County Emergency Operations Center web site at www.levydisaster.com or contacting them directly at 352-486-5212.
