From February 15 through 20, visitors and locals will be around the Daytona International Speedway, in Daytona Beach, for the 2022 Speedweeks, and the annual series of events coincide with the 64th annual running of the Daytona 500.
According to a release, to keep traffic disruption at a minimum for visitors and residents during Speedweeks, the Daytona Beach Police Department recommends everyone coming to the Daytona Beach area use the following information while making their travel plans:
There are no COVID-19 checkpoints planned for any events during Speedweeks. However, it is recommended that attendees follow the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention COVID-19 guidelines.
For those attending the races:
It is recommended for anyone coming from beachside to use the Seabreeze Bridge and then Mason Avenue/S.R. 430 for the quickest access to the Speedway. The bridges at Main Street and Orange/Silver Beach avenues are also an option, as is U.S. 92/International Speedway Boulevard (ISB) but do expect more traffic if you use ISB.
The Daytona Beach Police Department (DBPD) will implement traffic patterns when needed to ensure the fastest movement of vehicles in and out of the Speedway during races or events. These patterns will vary on how many people are in the facility and be put into effect or taken down quickly.
For those not attending the races:
Drivers looking to avoid race traffic while entering the Daytona Beach area can go either eastbound or westbound using the following roads:
Dunlawton Avenue/S.R. 421 (Port Orange)
Granada Boulevard/S.R. 40 (Ormond Beach)
S.R. 44 (DeLand/New Smyrna Beach)
If you’re trying to move east or west in Daytona Beach, we recommend using these roads instead of ISB/S.R. 92:
Beville Road between the Pelican Bay subdivision and Ridgewood Avenue/U.S. 1.
Mason Avenue between Clyde Morris and Ridgewood/U.S. 1.
For those going north or south, we suggest these roads instead of Interstate 95 or Williamson Boulevard:
Atlantic Avenue/S.R. A1A
Clyde Morris Boulevard
Nova Road/S.R. 5A
Ridgewood Avenue/U.S. 1
