Work continues on the Howard Frankland Bridge. This won’t impact most drivers, but if you drive during the overnight hours in to Pinellas from Hillsborough, set a reminder. The southbound lanes on the bridge will close starting at 11pm Monday. They should be back open by 5am Tuesday, according to Channel 8.
Crews will be putting up new signs for the Gateway Expressway project. Drivers trying to cross the Howard Frankland southbound during the closure will be forced to exit at Dale Mabry, head south and then jump on the Gandy Bridge.
The Gateway Expressway project is constructing two new 2-lane elevated tolled roadways that will provide direct connections between US 19 and I-275, and the Bayside Bridge (north of 49th Street N) and I-275. [Source: Channel 8]
