Tens of thousands of people will be in and around Daytona International Speedway between February 9 and February 14 for 2021 Speedweeks, the annual series of events and races which culminates with the Daytona 500. 

To keep traffic disruption at a minimum for visitors and residents during that time, we recommend everyone coming to or in the Daytona Beach area use this information while making their travel plans.

Follow @DBPDTraffic on Twitter for real-time traffic updates.

COVID-19 CHECKPOINTS

Anyone attempting to access the Speedway’s infield area will be subject to in-vehicle testing at all entrance points before they are allowed to enter.

Those looking to enter the Speedway’s grandstands will be subject to testing at all entrances before they are allowed to enter.

IF YOU’RE NOT GOING TO THE RACES…

We recommend avoiding the roads around Daytona International Speedway when possible, especially International Speedway Boulevard (ISB)/U.S. 92.

We expect heavy traffic on ISB/92 throughout Speedweeks between Clyde Morris Boulevard and Williamson Boulevard, especially during 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/State Road 421
  • Granada Boulevard/State Road 40
  • LPGA Boulevard
  • State Road 44

If you’re trying to move east or west in Daytona Beach, we recommend using these roads instead of ISB/92:

  • Beville Road between Pelican Bay and Ridgewood Avenue/U.S. 1
  • Mason Avenue between Clyde Morris Boulevard and Ridgewood/U.S. 1

For those going north or south, we suggest these roads instead of Interstate 95 or Williamson Boulevard:

  • Atlantic Avenue/State Road A1A
  • Clyde Morris Boulevard
  • Nova Road/State Road 5A
  • Ridgewood Avenue/U.S. 1

IF YOU’RE GOING TO THE RACES…

We recommend anyone coming from beachside to use the Seabreeze Bridge and then Mason Avenue/State Road 430 for quickest access to Daytona International Speedway.

We will implement special traffic patterns when needed to ensure the fastest movement of vehicle in and out of the Speedway. 

These patterns will vary on how many people are at the event.

We will post separate public service announcements for each race on social media around 48 hours prior.
