Bruce B. Downs bridge to southbound I-75 is now OPEN
NEW TAMPA -- A new flyover bridge entrance to southbound I-75 from southbound (westbound) Bruce B. Downs opened early Thursday morning (July 24).
Here are some notes associated with the new bridge and ramp:
* The previous double left turn lanes to southbound I-75 at the traffic signal are now closed permanently. All southbound Bruce B. Downs traffic entering southbound I-75 now exits to the right just south of Dona Michelle Drive. Motorists need to be extra alert in this area as drivers get used to the changed entrance ramp conditions.
* In the coming months, a second lane will be opened on the bridge. Meanwhile, this early opening of one lane on the bridge now will allow free-flowing access to southbound I-75 and allow signal timing to be adjusted on Bruce B. Downs to increase the amount of time Bruce B. Downs traffic has green signals.
* This $42 million Florida Department of Transportation project is running ahead of schedule; the contractor is anticipating completing the project before the original spring 2009 contract date.
