MAJOR CHANGES COMING TO GANDY BLVD.
The public is invited to learn more about $83 million in planned improvements to reduce congestion and improve traffic flow on Gandy Boulevard during an FDOT construction open house tomorrow, July 24. The open house will be at the Epiphany of our Lord Ukrainian Catholic Church, 434 90th Ave. N., from 5 to 7 p.m. FDOT staff will be available to answer questions from the public.
Gandy Blvd. would be elevated, with six traffic lanes between I-275 to just west of Dr. M.L. King Jr. St. before it narrows to four, ending just east of Fourth St. N., along with a system of frontage roads and pedestrian features. The project is scheduled for completion in Spring 2017.
