TAMPA — The reversible express lanes on Hillsborough County’s Selmon Expressway will return to their pre-Hurricane Ian routine, with normal operating hours beginning 6 a.m. Monday and all traffic moving in the westbound direction from Brandon to the downtown area.
The lanes then turn eastbound, to Brandon, at 3 p.m. and remain eastbound until 6 a.m. the following day.
The toll road connects the South Tampa neighborhood near MacDill Air Force Base with the city’s downtown and Brandon.
An announcement earlier Sunday that tolls would return on the Selmon was sent in error, the expressway authority said.
Gov. Ron DeSantis suspended toll payments on local roads, including the Selmon Expressway, last week ahead of Hurricane Ian, to help motorists trying to evacuate. That order remains in place for now.
