Rye PD has issued directions on the proper coastal evacuation route:
Advisory: Coastal evacuation route, if needed: Forest Av to Oakland Beach Av to Post Road to Old Post Rd to I-95. Plan early.
In the event of an emergency evacuation of coastal areas, the preferred route will be Forest Avenue to Oakland Beach Avenue, north on Boston Post Road to Old Post Road, to Interstate 95. Signs have been posted along that route.
Please note that those roads typically remain open while locations on Milton Road, Playland Parkway, Midland Avenue, and Boston Post Road flood. However, during a coastal event, Forest Avenue is likely to become inaccessible as well. Residents should prepare to leave vulnerable areas well in advance of that point.
REMEMBER: NEVER DRIVE INTO STANDING WATER.
