Beginning Tuesday, January 2, 2018 through Friday, January 5, 2018 from 9 pm to 6 am both Eastbound and Westbound Gandy Boulevard left thru lanes between Trask Street and Hesperides Street will be closed for geotechnical work.

Crews are working on four test shafts that will be serve as a basis for what will eventually be used to build the permanent piers. There will be minor traffic disruptions for motorists and noise will be kept to a minimum.

Please be reminded that both the Gandy Park South on the Southside of Gandy Boulevard and the Al Palonis Park on the north side of Gandy Boulevard are closed for the duration of the Selmon Extension construction. The Gandy Boat ramp will remain open. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
