About this Project
The Florida Department of Transportation's (FDOT) contractor is replacing bridge decks and widening the Selmon Expressway (State Road 618) from west of Morgan Street to east of 19th Street.
This project is a design-build project that was awarded to the team of Granite Construction Company (contractor) and Parsons Transportation Group (designer).
Bridge deck panels will be replaced with cast-in-place concrete bridge decks from west of Morgan Street to just east of 12th Street.
Roadway widening will take place in the eastbound direction from Washington Street to east of 19th Street; westbound from east of 19th Street to west of Morgan Street.
Parking lots under the Selmon Expressway will be closed periodically due to construction activities. Drivers will be alerted by the parking lot owners well in advance of the closures.
Traffic will be reduced to a single-lane in each direction on the west end of the project around-the-clock during the first half of 2012.
In order to maintain the construction schedule and to minimize the impact to the traveling public, lane closures (hours listed below) and construction activities are planned for nighttime hours.
Lane Closure Hours
Westbound Selmon Expressway: 7 p.m. to 5 a.m.
Eastbound Selmon Expressway: 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.
