So does this mean they can finish the lanes around 4th street? 😛 Not quite, although that little stretch will hopefully be finished soon independent of this funding.
No, this is funding is allocated to begin a two-mile toll lane running between Dale Mabry to the Gandy Bridge along Gandy Boulevard. $230 Million for a 2 mile stretch.
It seems that there is a lot going on South of Kennedy between this and the bike lane convo which eliminates a lane on Bay to Bay- check out the details here.
This extra extension to the Selmon is gonna be pretty awesome because we all know that Dale Mabry to the bridge can take a pretty ridiculous amount of time certain times of the day.
Construction is projected to begin early next year with the extension opening in late 2020
