NIGHTTIME ROAD CLOSURE SCHEDULED FOR GANDY BOULEVARD AT THE RAILROAD CROSSING
On Wednesday, July 31, and Thursday, August 1, 2019, crews will temporarily close Gandy Boulevard, between Dale Mabry Highway and Church Street between 9 pm and 6 am, weather permitting. This means that all lanes of both sides of Gandy will be closed during those times. The Selmon off-ramp to westbound Gandy will also be closed. Travelers will detour around the work zone using S. Dale Mabry, Euclid Avenue, Bay to Bay and Westshore Boulevard. The ramp from the Selmon Expressway to eastbound Gandy as well as the Selmon entrance ramp from northbound Dale Mabry will remain open. Electronic message boards will be displayed to alert drivers.
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.
