Tampa, FL – NIGHT TIME INSTALLATION OF THE FOURTH SELMON EXTENSION TEST SHAFT
Beginning Sunday, February 18, 2018 through Friday, February 23, 2018 from 9 pm to 6 am the Eastbound and Westbound Gandy Boulevard inside lanes east of Church Avenue will be closed to allow Contractors to install the fourth Selmon Extension test shaft. There will be minor traffic disruptions for motorists and noise will be kept to a minimum during these night time operations.
Also beginning Sunday, February 18, 2018 through Friday, February 23, 2018 from 9 pm to 6 am the Northbound SR 618 (Selmon Expressway) Dale Mabry Highway inside lane near the exit ramp will be closed for geotechnical work. In addition, during this time, short intermittent lane closures may occur along the Eastbound and Westbound Gandy Boulevard inside lanes to allow contractors to complete roadway widening, utility locates and other work in the area.
Other construction activities that will not impact traffic include relocating utility poles, installing low profile barrier walls, excavation and erosion control to prepare for the construction and maintenance of the highway and for the safety of the traveling public. Please be reminded that both the Gandy Park South on the south side of Gandy Boulevard and the Al Palonis Park on the north side of Gandy Boulevard are closed for the duration of the Selmon Extension construction. The Gandy Boat ramp will remain open. Thank you for your patience and understanding during our Gandy Boulevard improvements.
