The Princes Highway has now been opened in both directions, following impact from the Deans Gap fire yesterday.
Motorists need to be aware that a 60 km/h speed restriction will be in place along the highway from Wool Road to Bendalong.
The first groups of motorists will be given access via escort, then groups of vehicles will be let through progressively.
Authorities had hoped to open the road earlier today, however the opening was delayed by a new spot fire to the north of Sussex Inlet Road and to allow the RFS and RTA to ensure the road was clear of dangerous fallen limbs and fire debris.
It is possible that the road may close for short periods during the day to allow personnel to conduct emergency responses to fallen trees and other hazards.
Sussex Inlet Road will also reopen, however this road may also be closed for periods to allow firefighting operations.
Closures along Main Road 92 remain in place.
Motorists are advised that although the highway is open fire appliances will still be very active in the area.
The 60km/h speed limit will be strictly enforced, but may be revised later in the day.
Crews will be working hard today to create containment lines on the eastern side of the highway while weather conditions remain advantageous.
No evacuation orders are in place at the moment but residents are reminded to prepare their properties and make a bushfire survival plan now with hot weather forecast for later in the week.
The Deans Gap fire has now burned more than 3800 hectares with firefighters working to create containment lines over its 44km perimeter.
