DAVIE, Fla. – After the significant rainfall over the past several days, the Town of Davie has experienced substantial flooding. 

The Town will close the roadway along Southwest 26th Street from Flamingo Road to Hiatus Road to allow Town personnel to pump water from flooded areas. Local traffic will be allowed to access the roadway (see map). 


If you don’t access your home or community from this roadway, please use an alternative route, as this road will be closed while the water is being pumped. Once the roadway has reopened, an update will be provided to the community. 

Avoid Flood Dangers

  • Do not walk through, swim or allow children to play in standing water. Puddles and standing water can be full of hidden dangers, including snakes and other wildlife, broken glass, and other sharp objects. 
  • Do not drive through standing water. Your car engine may stall, potentially causing irreparable damage to the engine. The wake from your car may cause additional flooding in nearby homes and other structures. If you come upon a flooded street, take an alternate route. Stay off bridges over fast-moving water. 
  • Turn Around, Don’t Drown. Just six inches of moving water can knock you down, and one foot of moving water can sweep your vehicle away.
