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.
