  • Interstate 10 in both directions from Exit 209 (Leon County) to Exit 258 (Madison County) due to overpasses freezing over.
  • Highway 90 from Jefferson County to Leon County. For motorists entering Leon County from Jefferson County, Highway 90 has been closed due to ice on the bridge. If you still need to travel, officials say, please use Highway 27 as an alternate route.
  • East and westbound traffic on I-10 from Leon County near the 194 mile marker to the 283 mile marker in Suwannee County is closed due to wet and icy driving conditions. Drivers are encouraged to seek other routes to avoid these areas until weather and road conditions improve.
