Portion Of I-75 Near Apollo Beach Will Close Overnight, Two Nights This Month For Overpass Construction

APOLLO BEACH, FL. – Hillsborough County will fully close northbound and southbound Interstate 75 near Apollo Beach between exits 240 and 246 during overnight hours for two nights in December.

The closure will allow construction crews to pour concrete on a bridge over the interstate as part of the Paseo al Mar Boulevard construction project.

The northbound closure will be overnight from 11 p.m. until 5 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 8, through Thursday, Dec. 9.

The southbound closure will be overnight from 11 p.m. until 5 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 14, through Wednesday, Dec. 15. All closures are weather permitting. 

Motorists will be detoured around the work zone during the closures using Big Bend Road (CR 672) at Exit 246, U.S. Highway 301, and Sun City Center Boulevard (SR 674) at Exit 240. 

The new overpass is part of the Paseo al Mar Boulevard extension that will connect residents on either side of I-75 and reduce traffic on Big Bend Road and Sun City Center Boulevard in Apollo Beach.
