Ramps would be closed Monday night.

I didn’t see anything on the local news last night so I would have to say someone dropped the ball which I’m sure caused some frustration amongst some probably angry drivers.

Obviously TDOT is going as fast as possible to open the bridge and complete construction. We have some real growing pains in Lakeland but let’s don’t forget to keep the lines of commutation open.

Update: The exits will be closed again tonight (July 25) from 9pm to 4am, but this should be the last closure.
