9:20 Am bridge is open 10/4/15 .. expect to close at next high tide

As of 9 AM DelDot crews are still out and about on scene at many areas.  Roads are flooding at high tides and then are opened again.  I would recommend using the DelDot cams for places like the Indian River Inlet bridge for faster updates.  DelDot crews are very busy and spread thin.  Another day of heavy winds and rain.  Just be safe and smart today.

Fish On!!
