I-275 Exit to 4th Street N Reopens


I-275 Exit to 4th Street N: In a significant development for local commuters and visitors alike, the southbound I-275 Exit 32 to southbound 4th Street N (SR 687) welcomed traffic once again in the early hours of Monday, March 18, 2024. This reopening marks the end of a closure period dedicated to essential infrastructure enhancements tied to the Gateway Expressway and SR 687 bridge replacement projects, aiming to improve transportation efficiency and safety in Pinellas County.

The exit ramp, a vital link for motorists traveling south on I-275 and looking to access 4th Street N, had been temporarily shut to facilitate construction efforts integral to the broader scope of the Gateway Expressway initiative. The closure was part of a meticulously planned series of improvements designed to bolster the region’s road network, addressing growing traffic demands and preparing for future transportation needs.

I-275 Exit to 4th Street: Reopening at 1:30 a.m., the exit ramp now offers unhindered access to one of St. Petersburg’s key arteries, 4th Street N, signaling a smooth transition for daily commutes and commercial traffic alike. The completion of work on this segment underscores the commitment of local and state transportation authorities to minimize disruptions while enhancing the overall travel experience for the public.

With all traffic movements now operational at the I-275 interchange, the flow of vehicles from southbound I-275 to 4th Street N and entrance onto northbound I-275 is expected to see significant improvement. This development is anticipated to ease congestion, reduce travel times, and enhance safety for thousands of motorists navigating this route daily.

I-275 Exit to 4th Street: The projects associated with the Gateway Expressway and the SR 687 bridge replacement are part of a comprehensive strategy to upgrade Pinellas County’s transportation infrastructure. These initiatives aim to address the challenges of a growing population, increasing vehicle traffic, and the need for resilient, efficient roadways capable of supporting economic growth and mobility in the region.

For residents and travelers looking to stay informed about ongoing and future transportation projects, including the Gateway Expressway, authorities have provided a resource for alerts and updates. Interested parties are encouraged to visit the official project website for the latest information and to sign up for notifications, ensuring they remain well-informed of developments that may impact their travel plans.

This reopening not only symbolizes a milestone in local infrastructure projects but also reinforces the commitment of Pinellas County and the state of Florida to invest in a transportation network that meets the needs of its communities now and in the future.
