For the duration of the high pressure portion of the hydrotest, as a safety consideration, Florida Gas Transmission Company isolated sections of the 18-inch diameter mainline pipe from any vehicular or pedestrian traffic. The test started at midnight, so the ramps, cross-streets, lanes and sidewalks that were closed for the hydrotest along the 10.2-mile pipeline alignment remained closed until approximately 4:00 AM. Standard detours for the closures were provided the night of the hydrotest.

A General Utility Permit from the Florida Department of Transportation, which includes a Traffic Control Plan, was obtained. A summary of the ramp, cross-street, lane and sidewalk closures noted on the Traffic Control Plans is provided in the table below. Law enforcement personnel will be stationed along the detours, as well as at each ramp and lane closure along the hydrotest alignment, for the duration of the test.
