BLOG – SWE Crews Accelerate Work Amid Low Traffic Volumes

Since the COVID-19 pandemic temporarily shut down Tampa Bay, Selmon Extension construction crews ramped up operations due to fewer travelers on the road. The project team implemented 24-hour inside lane closures as needed which allows them to set segments in the daytime. Crews also shut down roadways in the early evening to pour the concrete bridge decks for the interchange off-ramp. Work efforts have now shifted to the northbound bridge decks over Dale Mabry Highway. The project team will resume the original lane closure time period when traffic volumes return to normal levels.
