Weekend road closures in Ybor City and on Selmon Expressway

TAMPA — A portion of the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway and a road under it will be closed tonight until Monday morning while construction crews set bridge beams.

Northbound and southbound 21st and 22nd streets in Ybor City will be closed at the Selmon Expressway, according to the Tampa Hillsborough County Expressway Authority. Traffic will be detoured to 20th Street. Northbound drivers who use those streets to reach Interstate 4 should take eastbound State Road 60 to 50th Street.

For those traveling between Interstate 4 and the Port of Tampa, officials suggest using 50th Street and Causeway Boulevard to avoid delays.

Traffic on the Selmon Expressway will be detoured one direction at a time between 22nd Street (exit 9) and 50th Street (exit 11), the Florida Department of Transportation said.

Eastbound traffic will be detoured at exit 9 to State Road 60 and back onto the expressway at 50th Street. Westbound traffic will have the opposite pattern. Tolls at the exit 9 ramps will be suspended during the detour.

The detour begins at 8 p.m. tonight and runs until 5 a.m. Monday. The closure is part of construction work on the I-4/Selmon Expressway Connector.

    TAMPA — Charles Gounod's Faust sets the table early. The world-weary philosopher immortalized in a dramatic poem by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe is in his study, lamenting his state of affairs. He's willing to give away everything he has to be young again, even his soul.
