SELMON EXPRESSWAY WESTBOUND AT GANDY BOULEVARD TEMPORARILY CLOSED UNTIL EARLY MONDAY MORNING
On Sunday, August 26, 2018, due to construction activities crews have temporarily shut down the Selmon Expressway westbound at Gandy Boulevard. Travelers will need to use the detour at Euclid Avenue. Those who need to access Gandy Boulevard will need to use Himes Avenue or Dale Mabry Highway.
Crews anticipate this section of the Selmon Expressway to reopen Monday, August 27, 2018, before morning rush hour traffic.
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 an 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.
