The Florida Department of Transportation (“FDOT”) is currently constructing the “Gateway Expressway” in Pinellas County. The project will create two new 4-lane elevated tolled roadways that will provide direct connection – with no intersections – between US 19 and I-275 and between the Bayside Bridge (north of 49th Street N) and I-275. The project has two components: (1) Construction of the Gateway Expressway; (2) Widening of I-275 to create express tolled lanes. This project is a “Design-Build” project, meaning that construction has already begun in some areas while Final Design is still being completed. The project is expected to be completed in late 2021. For more information on the project, please refer to the link below.
