With the Christmas and New Year’s holidays coming up, traffic is expected to be heavy as people travel to holiday events, do last minute shopping and take care of holiday errands. This is especially true for those who live on and travel through the Big Pine Key area.
Traffic becomes particularly congested during the holiday season on Big Pine Key. Sheriff Rick Ramsay would like to remind everyone to be patient. Expect delays and try to get out early in the day before traffic is at its heaviest.
Most of all, drive safely. Don’t pass in no passing zones or center turn lanes; pay attention to the speed limit and don’t drink and drive.
The Sheriff’s Office will be monitoring traffic on Big Pine Key closely, particularly at the traffic light. We will do our best to keep traffic moving in that area.
Have safe and happy holidays from the Sheriff’s Office.
