Update: The closure has been moved back one more day. See new dates below.
Hillsborough County, Fla. (Oct. 12, 2021) - A weather delay has caused the southbound lane closure of Interstate 75 near Apollo Beach between exits 240 and 246 to be extended by one more day. Hillsborough County will fully close northbound and southbound Interstate 75 near Apollo Beach during overnight hours to allow construction crews to build a bridge over the interstate as part of the Paseo al Mar Boulevard construction project.
The southbound closure now will continue through tonight, Tuesday, Oct. 12, from 11 p.m. until 5 a.m. The new dates for the northbound closure now will be overnight Wednesday, Oct. 12 through Thursday, Oct. 14 and again on Sunday, Oct. 17 until Tuesday, Oct. 19 from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. 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.
