Police control access at a check point in Florida City into the Florida Keys on Tuesday.

Miami-Dade County has lifted the daily curfew it imposed Sunday after Hurricane Irma.

The 7 p.m.-7 a.m. curfew will not be enforced Tuesday night, county spokesman Michael Hernández said. The city of Miami also did away with its curfew Tuesday.

Broward County lifted its curfew Monday, less than 48 hours after it was imposed and despite criticism from some city mayors.
