Appellant challenges a final order of dismissal in her negligence action for damages sustained in a collision on a roadway over which the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has jurisdiction. The trial court ruled that the claim is precluded by FDOT's sovereign immunity.
In reviewing the propriety of an order granting a motion to dismiss, we must take all the facts alleged in the complaint as true and draw all reasonable inferences in favor of the nonmoving party. Weaver v. Leon County Classroom Teachers Ass'n, 680 So.2d 478 (Fla. 1st DCA 1996).
As explained in Department of Transportation v. Neilson, 419 So.2d 1071 (Fla. 1982), these assertions encompass an operational-level function to which sovereign immunity does not apply. See also, e.g., City of St. Petersburg v. Collom, 419 So.2d 1082 (Fla.1982); Mann v. State Dep't of Transp., 946 So.2d 1246 (Fla. 1st DCA 2007); Polk County v. Sofka, 803 So.2d 751 (Fla. 2d DCA 2001), review denied 821 So.2d 300 (Fla.2002).
Therefore, we reverse the order dismissing appellant's complaint with prejudice and remand for further proceedings.
