South Selmon Safety Project

South Selmon Saftey Improvements


The South Selmon Safety Project will enhance driver safety by constructing a concrete barrier wall in the median of the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway between Hillsborough River and Himes Avenue.

This barrier wall between the Eastbound traffic and the Westbound traffic will prevent deadly crossover accidents. Studies show that median barriers are effective in reducing fatal crashes and serious-injury crashes caused by crossover accidents.

In addition to the barrier wall, the shoulders along the median will be paved to create a safe location for vehicles to pull over and await assistance. This will also help us keep our Road Rangers and First Responders safe as they help motorists.

There will be no lane closures on the Selmon Expressway during peak travel times and no impact to residents who use the streets under the Expressway.

To have THEA team members brief your neighborhood association or other local organization on the South Selmon Safety Project and other THEA projects, please email [email protected].

While we know that construction can be painful, making the Selmon Expressway a safe roadway for our travelers is always our top priority.

Project Goals:

THEA has established the following goals for the South Selmon Safety Improvements:

  • Improve safety to the corridor.
  • Minimize the inconvenience to the traveling public.
  • Minimize the inconvenience to adjacent residences including minimizing night work, noise, and temporary construction lighting.
  • Minimize environmental impacts, including impacts to established wetlands.
  • Maintain the quality of existing traffic operations.
