The Selmon Extension is a planned 1.9-mile toll lane located in the median of Gandy Boulevard, which will allow a choice for local residents and regional travelers: use Gandy Boulevard for local destinations or use the Selmon Extension for a direct connection to the Selmon Expressway or the Gandy Bridge.


The Selmon Extension provides a more efficient and safer dedicated hurricane evacuation route for almost 1.3 million local and regional families.


Reduces Intersection traffic signal wait times (at Westshore Boulevard, Manhattan Boulevard, Lois Avenue and Dale Mabry Highway) equals reduced congestion and delays for local residents and shoppers.


Allows for continued vehicle access and visibility to businesses on both sides of Gandy. Completes a critical link in a road network that connects businesses, freight, and people throughout Tampa Bay.

The Selmon Extension will provide a safer, smarter and connected choice for both local residents and regional travelers.
