For the duration of the high pressure portion of the hydrotest, as a safety consideration, the Florida Gas Transmission Company isolated the 10-inch diameter pipeline from vehicular and pedestrian traffic. The test started at midnight, so the road and lane closures (noted above) along the 6.1-mile pipeline alignment were closed until approximately 4:00 a.m. A Traffic Control Plan for the night of the hydrotest was approved, and the associated General Utility Permit was issued by the Florida Department of Transportation.

Law enforcement personnel were stationed at the intersections along the hydrotest alignment for the duration of the hydrotest. Side streets were closed with barricades; however, emergency responders were always able to cross as needed.
