Take A Look At The Nearly Completed Selmon Expressway Extension
The Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority released an aerial video that shows work along the 1.9-mile extension.
Work is nearly complete on the extension of the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway in Tampa.
The Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority released a video on Saturday that shows an aerial view of the expressway, which is scheduled to open in April.
According to officials, crews completed work on three toll gantries, and continue to finish drainage installations that will allow rain water to funnel into grates and into pipes on the inside of the bridge, and finally into the existing storm drainage system.
When complete, the 1.9-mile extension – located in the median of Gandy Boulevard – will link the east end of the Gandy Bridge to the Selmon.
Drivers from Tampa heading west can access the toll extension from the Selmon or the Dale Mabry Highway ramps. From St. Petersburg, eastbound motorists can exit at the Dale Mabry interchange or continue northeast toward downtown Tampa.
