ST. PETERSBURG - The Florida Department of Transportation is set to begin construction on an $83 million project to improve east-west traffic flow in Pinellas County along Gandy Boulevard from Fourth Street to I-275.

The design-build team of Condotte-DeMoya JV/BCC was awarded the contract to transform the existing roadway to an elevated six-lane facility (three in each direction) from I-275 to MLK Jr. Street and four lanes (two in each direction) from MLK Jr. Street to east of Fourth Street. Overpasses will be built at 94th Avenue, MLK Jr. Street, Roosevelt Boulevard and Fourth Street. A frontage road system will parallel the mainline roadway.

Other features of the project will include pedestrian and bicycle accommodations along the corridor (frontage roads only), signalization, lighting, Intelligent Transportation System and landscaping.

Temporary lane closures will be necessary along Gandy, MLK Jr. St., Roosevelt, and Fourth Street. Most closures will be done during off-peak hours. During peak hours, three lanes in each direction will be available between I-275 and MLK Jr. Street and two lanes in each direction from MLK Jr. Street to east of Fourth Street. Temporary detours will also be necessary, however most detours will occur during weekend hours.

FDOT will host a construction open house this summer to present more information about the project to the public. The project is slated for completion in 2017.
