Brandon, FL -- Drivers traveling from southbound I-75 to the Selmon Expressway (SR 618 - Exit 256) are now using a new exit ramp.
The new exit point is just south of Exit 257 to SR 60 (about one-half mile north of the previous exit), meaning motorists need to make the decision to exit to the Selmon Expressway sooner. Once on the exit ramp, drivers should remain alert to traffic entering from westbound SR 60 merging from the right side. After that merge area, drivers will continue southward on the frontage ramp lanes and follow the signs to the Selmon Expressway.
This new southbound I-75 exit point opened at 3:25 a.m. Tuesday, January 28 and replaces the previous exit ramp to the Selmon Expressway. This is a permanent change to the interchange configuration in this area. Drivers should be extra cautious to the new traffic pattern and remain alert to construction workers in the area.
