Gandy Boulevard near I-275 to close for much of the day for police funeral

ST. PETERSBURG — Motorists should expect heavy traffic most of Friday near Interstate 275 and Gandy Boulevard as thousands of people attend the funerals for two fallen St. Petersburg officers.

Gandy Boulevard will close to traffic from Interstate 275 to Martin Luther King Jr. St. N beginning at 8 a.m. Normal traffic flow is expected to resume around 5 p.m.

Both northbound and southbound I-275 will be accessible from Gandy from the west, but motorists likely will see lengthy delays, according to St. Petersburg officials.

The interstate will not be accessible westbound from Gandy. All eastbound traffic will be diverted north or south along I-275.

Frontage Road/94th Avenue near First Baptist Church, where the services are being held, will be closed to through traffic.
