PLEASE NOTE: State Road 5 is NOT CLOSED, however, it will be slower moving traffic and at times may be down to one lane for all vehicles and buggys. This is our way of helping you avoid this area if possible during your visit.
If you are going to the Blue Gate Performing Arts Center, Blue Gate Garden Inn, or Farmstead Inn, please be aware that there may be slight delays in the yellow area and to be patient as you drive down State Road 5 into town.
