Many neighborhoods throughout the city are experiencing flood waters, and while it is tempting to play in the water, residents are being encouraged to not let children play in flood waters as these water may be contaminated by sewage. The Florida Department of Health shared tips from hurricane Irma, which remain helpful in the aftermath of Eta.  Please stay safe as the water recedes:

UPDATE on 11/12/20: Following initial roadway assessment on Tuesday (11/10/20): 
- Johnson Street, between NW 184 Avenue & NW 186 Avenue, has been reopened.
- The 100 Block of NW 186 Avenue is down to one lane of travel due to roadway flooding; barricades have been put in place to block off the outer lane.
- Three large potholes have opened up in the southbound lanes of NW 186 Avenue, just north of NW 3rd Street. Barricades will be placed to block off the roadway.
- A large pothole has opened up in the 700 Block of NW 178 Avenue; barricades have been placed to block off the affected lane of travel.
- The roadway along NW 186 Avenue & NW 196 Avenue, between Taft Street and Pines Boulevard, still has significant amounts of standing water. Vehicles are able to travel safely in these areas if they slow their speed.


ATTENTION DRIVERS: Pembroke Pines Police officers are continuing to assess the safety of our roadways following Tropical Storm Eta. The following roadways are partially or completely closed down due to flooding:
Eastbound and westbound Johnson Street is currently blocked between 184 Avenue and 186 Avenue.
186 Avenue & Pines Boulevard; only one northbound lane of travel is open at this time. To minimize traffic backup, please restrict travel along this roadway to residents & essential business only.
The intersection of Taft Street & 196 Avenue has extreme high water, and an officer is on scene to warn drivers. Please proceed with caution, and restrict travel to residents & essential business only.
Douglas Road and Pines Boulevard has been re-opened.  
It is better to be safe than sorry - if you are approaching a submerged roadway and you are unsure of the depth, seek an alternate route.
