TAMPA — Starting Monday until Feb. 2, traffic on 28th Street, south of State Road 60, will be reduced to one lane in preparation of the construction of a new highway Interstate 4 and the Lee Roy Selmon Crosstown Expressway connector.
The closure will be in effect from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. while crews move a gas main for the $390 million project, which won't officially start until March 1, said Florida Department of Transportation spokesman John McShaffrey.
In the meantime, small lane closures around the area should cause only minor traffic delays, McShaffrey said.
The project is scheduled to take about three years, wrapping up in the summer of 2013.
