TAMPA, Fla. – Beginning at 10 p.m., Monday, February 12, to 6 a.m., Tuesday, February 13, the SR 60 (Memorial Highway) ramp from the George J. Bean Parkway is closing temporarily, weather permitting.
Motorists exiting the Tampa International Airport will have to use the SR 589 (Veterans Expressway) ramp (right at the fork) and proceed toward Exit 2A (SR 60) to access Clearwater.
Advanced warning signs and electronic message boards will assist vehicles traveling through the area. Motorists must be cautious when traveling through the work zone and remain alert for construction workers.
This temporary closure is necessary as crews perform maintenance activities as part of the widening of westbound SR 60 near the Tampa International Airport.
The $45.5 million project is adding one westbound SR 60 (Memorial Highway) travel lane from the George J. Bean Parkway to the Courtney Campbell Causeway and constructing a new flyover ramp from westbound SR 60 to the Independence Parkway near the Tampa International Airport.
Construction activities are expected to finish in the spring of 2025.
