BLOG – Promises Made, Promises Kept

         

Can you spot the difference in these photos? The photo on the left is actually a rendering of what we told you the project would look like when it’s completed.  The right photo was taken last week of the actual project. Pretty close, huh!  The only difference is that we used a darker shade of blue on the Estuary design.

As the project moves toward the final configuration, the primary contractor continues monitoring all aspects of completion, making sure the bridge is built per the design specification and that Gandy Boulevard gets repaved and restriped before the new roadway opens.

BLOG – Brick Paving, Landscaping, and More Complete!

       

SWE crews are working on the final phase of completing the Selmon West Extension. Crews finished brick paving, landscaping, and painting efforts on the west end of the project. The next step is finishing the aesthetic lighting. Crews continue working to install brick pavers and plant trees as they move towards the intersection of Manhattan Avenue. Earlier this month, landscapers began planting trees in the median across from the Selmon Expressway entrance ramp.

BLOG – Toll Plaza Testing

Selmon Extension crews will begin testing all three Toll Plazas in a few months. This will include checking all the electrical work and making sure it’s functioning properly. Crews will conduct several vehicle-run-throughs for all three AET plazas towards the end of the project before the new elevated roadway opens to the public.
