THEA to Host Second Gandy Business Engagement Meeting

Tampa, FL – The Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority (THEA) is hosting a second Business Engagement meeting on Thursday, September 13th at 6:00 PM. During this meeting, local Gandy business owners will have the opportunity to meet with the Selmon Extension project team and discuss the project’s progress or construction concerns.

The Business Engagement Meeting is a part of THEA’s commitment to maintaining open communication with Gandy-area businesses during the construction phase of the Selmon Extension. THEA held its first Business Engagement Meeting on August 9th and outreach teams will continue to meet with Gandy area businesses and residents to provide information and support throughout the construction period. In addition, the project’s Public Information Officer, Kym Graves, is on-site Monday through Friday to address any concerns in person. THEA understands that construction is disruptive and aims to be a good neighbor through the duration of the project. Virtual Town Hall Meetings, community outreach meetings, the Shop Gandy! Initiative and business engagement meetings give business owners opportunities to be involved, feel supported, and stay informed during the construction of the Selmon Extension.
