    8:00 a.m. Tuesday: Per JSO, all bridges are open. 

    UPDATE: Many of Jacksonville's bridges have reopened, according to officials.

    Jacksonville Beach said the bridges could be closed for some time after Hurricane Irma.

    The decision to reopen them was announced Monday evening around 6 p.m.

    Officials said a 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew that went into effect Saturday will end on Tuesday at 6 a.m.

    There is still a restriction on alcohol sales and the beaches are still closed, officials said.

    The Dames Point, Fuller Warren and Buckman bridges are open as of 3:45 p.m., officials said.

    The rest of the Jacksonville bridges are closed because of flooding.

    St. Johns County officials said all bridges to the beaches will remain closed until Tuesday at the earliest.
