CITY OF TAMPA LANE CLOSURES SCHEDULED FOR GANDY BOULEVARD THIS WEEKEND

On Friday, February 15, 2019, the City of Tampa will close the outside lanes on eastbound and westbound Gandy Boulevard between Dale Mabry Highway and S. Manhattan Avenue to access an underground water line. The insides lanes will remain open for travel during this time. The closure will begin at 9 pm and remain until 6 am Monday, February 18, 2019.

In an effort to keep the construction crews and the traveling public safe, we want to remind motorists that the posted construction speed limit is 45 miles per hour. Speed enforcement will be in place in the signed construction zones. The fine for speeding in a construction zone is double the amount of a regular ticket.

  •  New traffic pattern remains in place for the Selmon Expressway’s exit to eastbound Gandy Boulevard.
  • The short merge still exists on eastbound Gandy between the CSX railroad tracks and Dale Mabry Highway at the entrance to the Selmon Expressway. As an alternative, turn left (north) on Dale Mabry Highway and access the Selmon Expressway ramp, located just behind Target.
