posted by Sarah Jacobs - 

If you regularly travel on Gandy Blvd in South Tampa, you know what a mess it is right now with the big construction project (if you don't know what the construction project is, CLICK HERE. It's a big one!). This weekend, workers will be closing travel lanes and a sidewalk on Gandy between the bridge and Westshore Blvd. Here's the official media update.

From the FDOT:

MEDIA ALERT AUGUST 10, 2018

SELMON EXTENSION CONSTRUCTION ALERTS WEEK OF AUGUST 12-17, 2018

ON SATURDAY, AUGUST 11, 2018, CREWS WILL SHUT DOWN ONE LANE OF TRAFFIC FROM 9  PM - 6 AM ON EASTBOUND GANDY BOULEVARD AT THE INTERSECTION OF WEST SHORE  BOULEVARD. CREWS WILL DRILL A HOLE INTO THE GROUND TO INSTALL A SIGNAL LIGHT  POLE.

THOSE TRAVELING EASTBOUND GANDY BOULEVARD WILL USE THE STRAIGHT-THRU LANE TO  MAKE A RIGHT TURN ONTO WEST SHORE. THE CORNER SIDEWALK WILL BE CLOSED DURING  THIS ACTIVITY. SIGNS WILL BE POSTED TO ALERT MOTORISTS.

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.

OTHER UPDATES: THE EXISTING TURN-AROUND CONFIGURATION NEAR THE GANDY BRIDGE HAS BEEN  PERMANENTLY RELOCATED. MOTORISTS CAN NOW MAKE THE LEFT-TURN INTO THE BOAT RAMP  ENTRANCE, U-TURN DIRECTLY BACK ONTO EASTBOUND GANDY BOULEVARD OR MAKE THE  LEFT-TURN FROM EASTBOUND GANDY BOULEVARD TO ACCESS THE MARINE CORP. BASE  ENTRANCE.

THE SHORT MERGE REMAINS IN PLACE ON EASTBOUND GANDY BETWEEN LOIS AVENUE AND  DALE MABRY HIGHWAY AT THE ENTRANCE TO THE SELMON EXPRESSWAY. THIS LANE  CONFIGURATION WILL REMAIN IN PLACE DURING THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE SELMON  EXTENSION'S NEW RAMPS. TO AVOID CONGESTION IN THIS AREA DURING RUSH-HOUR  TRAFFIC, WE ADVISE TRAVELERS TO USE THE ALTERNATE ROUTE. TURN LEFT (NORTH) ON  DALE MABRY HIGHWAY AND ACCESS THE SELMON EXPRESSWAY RAMP, LOCATED JUST BEHIND  TARGET.

THE SIDEWALK REMAINS CLOSED ON EASTBOUND GANDY BOULEVARD BETWEEN LOIS AVENUE  AND DALE MABRY HWY. PEDESTRIANS WALKING BETWEEN LOIS AVENUE FROM DALE MABRY  HWY SHOULD USE THE SIDEWALK ON THE NORTH SIDE OF GANDY BOULEVARD. DETOUR SIGNS  ARE POSTED TO ALERT PEDESTRIANS. GRAPHICS ARE INCLUDED TO SHOW THE DETOUR.

ONE LANE ON BOTH EASTBOUND AND WESTBOUND GANDY BOULEVARD BETWEEN WESTSHORE  BOULEVARD AND THE GANDY BRIDGE WILL BE CLOSED EACH NIGHT BETWEEN 9 PM AND 6 AM
