Gateway Express Project
The Gateway Express project is a planned expressway that aims to improve mobility and transportation efficiency in mid-Pinellas County, including areas north of St. Petersburg. The project consists of two branches: an elevated highway above 118th Street North between Interstate (I-275) and US Hwy 19 (US 19) and a raised highway in the median of Roosevelt (SR 686) from 118th Street to the Bayside Bridge. The project funding was recently approved and is anticipate to start construction in 2017.
