The Florida Highway Patrol has reopened three major roads in Central Florida after closing them Monday morning due to poor visibility.

The Beachline was shut down between State Road 520 and Interstate 95, while sections of State Road 407 and State Road 44 were also closed.


The State Road 44 closure was in place near County Road 44 in Lake County.

Troopers announced that all roads were reopened by about 10 a.m.

The conditions prompted Lake County officials to shut down school bus transportation for areas south of Astor to County Road 44-A.

Lake County Schools said the closure will mostly impact students from Umatilla Elementary, Umatilla Middle, and Umatilla High, along with a few from Eustis Middle, Eustis High, and Seminole Springs.

The district said students who are unable to attend school Monday because of transportation issues will be excused.

Officials have been fighting wildfires that cropped up across Central Florida over the weekend. The fires caused periodic, hours-long road closures Saturday and Sunday.


At least 126,000 acres have burned in wildfires across the state since January. Agriculture Commissioners has described this year as the most active fire season since 2011. Gov. Rick Scott has declared a state of emergency because of active wildfires across Florida.
