UPDATE: Roads Closed in Okaloosa County

Update at 3:26 p.m.

There is currently a shoulder closure along the inside westbound emergency lane on I-10 in the area of the 48mm west of the Holt exit due to soil erosion from the recent heavy rains.

The erosion is not affecting the roadway at this time. Both westbound lanes of I-10 are open for vehicular traffic. The closure is a precautionary measure and crews will be monitoring the erosion through the night.
