The Gateway Expressway project will create two new 4-lane elevated tolled roadways that will provide direct connections - with no intersections - between US 19 and I-275 and between the Bayside Bridge (north of 49th Street N) and I-275.
Also, I-275 will be widened to add one toll lane in each direction next to the existing freeway lanes from south of Gandy Boulevard to 4th Street North.
The project is made up of two components:
Construction is underway in most of the project area and will be more widespread as additional final designs plans are approved.
This project is a design-build project, which means that an overall concept of the design was put out to bid with many design requirements specified in a Request for Proposals. The successful contractor was chosen from a number of qualified firms bidding on the contract based on a design that met the requirements and is the most economical to construct. The contracting team that has been selected has now begun the final design (with its own or contracted licensed engineers) under the same contract time that includes the construction. This allows the contractor to begin working on specific items of work as portions of the design are completed and approved.
