Traffic Alert from TPD SB I275 Exit Ramp to DM close Tuesday

This notice is archived content and this information may no longer be accurate.

TRAFFIC ALERT: As part of its ongoing construction project, the Florida Department of Transportation will be closing the southbound I275 exit ramp (Exit 41A/B) to Dale Mabry Highway beginning at 11:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 27, 2014 and will reopen in approximately four months.

The signed detour route will be to use Exit 41C to Himes Avenue (immediately before the Dale Mabry Highway exit), turn left at the bottom of the ramp and go south to Cypress Street, then turn right and go west on Cypress Street to Dale Mabry Highway. Drivers are reminded that Himes Avenue is an exit from the left lane of southbound I275.

In order to handle the additional traffic, improvements to the Himes Avenue exit ramp will be completed before the Dale Mabry exit is closed. The Himes exit ramp will be lengthened and will be widened where it joins Himes Avenue to provide a left turn lane, a middle lane where turns will be permitted in either direction, and a right turn lane.

Please contact the Florida Department of Transportation at (813) 443-0654 with questions or concerns.
