This serves as a notification for scheduled road closures of the Hart Bridge elevated Expressway Ramps. These changes are necessary to allow for the removal of the elevated Expressway ramps from A. Phillip Randolph Blvd eastward to the Hart Bridge connection; reconstruction of Gator Bowl Blvd from Hogan’s Creek eastward to Talleyrand Ave and construction of the new connections to the remaining elevated Expressway Ramp with new bridge spans over A. Phillip Randolph Blvd and new bridge connection to the Hart Bridge Expressway. 

This road closure will begin on April 4, 2020. 

These changes are part of the project plan to allow for the demolition of 56 spans of the elevated ramps next to the river. The initial project phase is scheduled to allow for connecting Gator Bowl Blvd to the Hart Bridge. 

Please follow the installed detour signage carefully for your safety.

Traffic control devices will be installed for the safety of vehicular and pedestrian traffic as well as safety of the construction crews in the area. Traffic Control Officers will be located at key intersections during peak hours and during lane closures to direct traffic. 

The detour to Gator Bowl Blvd. will direct vehicles near the federal COVID-19 testing location at Lot J, but there is no risk to drivers and passengers traveling through.
