5/24/19 @ 11:15 a.m. – Emergency Management Director, Greg Foster, just notified us that the north and south bound lanes of I-95 have reopened as smoke conditions on the interstate have cleared. Should the wind shift and smoke begin to affect the visibility of the road, they may have to close them again. We will keep everyone posted.
