When will the causeways close?
Specifically, the causeways never close for westbound traffic and will remain open, however that does not mean it is safe to cross. Wind speeds can be much faster at the top of the bridge than at ground level.
After a Storm has passed, the bridges may not be open for returning traffic until the beach-side cities have safely cleared debris from the main roadways, therefore it is possible the causeways will not be open for several hours after tropical storm winds have passed.
