Starting TONIGHT, I-275 SOUTHBOUND will CLOSE at Dale Mabry.
All southbound I-275 travel lanes on the Howard Frankland Bridge from Tampa to St. Petersburg to close from 11 p.m. on Monday, August 15 to 5 a.m. on Tuesday, August 16, weather permitting. This closure is necessary for crews to perform overhead sign installation work as part of the Gateway Expressway project.
During this closure, all southbound I-275 motorists needing to cross Old Tampa Bay will be directed to exit the interstate using US 92 West (Dale Mabry
South) Exit 41A, continue south on Dale Mabry Highway, west on Gandy Boulevard, then north on Roosevelt Boulevard towards the southbound I-275 entrance ramp. This closure does not affect northbound traffic on I-275.
Other roadways (Kennedy Boulevard, Memorial Highway, Courtney Campbell Causeway, Bayside Bridge and Roosevelt Boulevard) will remain accessible and provide an additional route while traveling south on Veterans Expressway or exiting the Tampa International Airport.
Advanced warning signs and electronic message boards will assist motorists traveling through the area. Motorists should expect traffic delays and congestion during these detours.
