Tampa, FL Crews will continue installing the third test shaft on the Selmon Extension
Beginning Sunday, January 14, 2018 through Thursday, January 18, 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 currently installing the third test shaft 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.
Other construction activities that will not impact traffic include the removal of roots and stumps, excavation and erosion control to prepare for the construction and maintenance of the highway and for the safety of the traveling public.
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.
Please watch out for sudden stops, merging traffic and work zone operations.
