The new southbound / westbound lanes of the Howard Frankland Bridge are coming along. It will be 8 lanes wide with four general use and four express lanes.
As of April, approximately 85% of all piling had been driven, 360 of the 549 bridge columns had been completed. and 29 of the 113 bridge decks had been placed. Once the new bridge is built and all traffic is moved to the final alignment, the existing northbound/eastbound (St. Petersburg to Tampa) bridge will be removed.
All is expected to be completed by the end of 2025. Here’s a look at the work from above from pictures taken last month.
