Smoke from several wildfires in the area of Goethe State Forest and Lebanon Station in southern Levy County could affect parts of several roadways, warned the Florida Highway Patrol Monday.

The roadways that could be affected by smoke and morning fog are State Road 24, SR 55/U.S. 19, SR 121, County Road 336, CR 337 and CR 326, as well as other local roads in this area.

Motorists are urged to use caution when traveling in these areas. Visibility may deteriorate quickly due to smoke/fog type conditions, especially during the night and early morning hours. Motorists are reminded to reduce their speed and utilize low beam headlights in order to adapt to changing weather conditions.
