During a flooding event there will be two different phases which will have the gates to this emergency route open allowing access as follows:
- Phase I will allow emergency vehicles only; this means fire trucks, ambulance, law enforcement vehicles. No private vehicles will be allowed access at this time.
- Phase II will allow access to those residents who live within the areas that this emergency route will allow them to leave and return to their homes during sustained flooding events. If access to the normal routes is just a matter of waiting until the tide goes out then the gates will not be open.
