TEMPORARY ROAD CLOSURE NEXT WEEK ON GANDY BOULEVARD FOR OVERHEAD BRIDGE WORK
On Monday, June 3 and Tuesday, June 4, 2019, Selmon Extension construction crews will temporarily shut down portions of Gandy Boulevard in both directions between Dale Mabry Highway and Church Street for overhead bridge work. The temporary shutdown will occur both days between 9 pm and 6 am. Drivers will need to detour at Dale Mabry Highway, Interbay or Westshore Boulevard. The entrance to the Selmon from eastbound Gandy will also be closed during these times. Drivers can access the Selmon, by using the ramp on northbound Dale Mabry behind the Target.
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.
