Route 1 has been closed to all traffic between Collins Ave in Dewey Beach and north of Bethany Beach. Just before high tide this afternoon the dunes were breached and water and sand covered the northbound lanes of route 1 and water flooded the southbound side just north of the Indian River Inlet Bridge. The Bay Bridge has reopened to passenger vehicle traffic only. All trucks must exit prior to the bridge. Roads are debris covered and some water covered. If you’re driving – don’t drive through standing water as you don’t know how deep that water might be. Watch for downed trees and power lines.
