Florida 589 / Veterans Express Lanes nearly complete

Home » On The Road » Florida 589 / Veterans Express Lanes nearly complete

Posted our first 2018 road photos to the site this afternoon, updating the guides for the Veterans Expressway (Florida 589) north and south. Phase 1 of the Express Lanes were completed on December 9, 2017. They run in both directions from Memorial Highway (Exit 3) to Wilksy Boulevard (Exit 8). Phase 2 remains under construction through this spring. Extending northward from Gunn Highway (Exit 9) to the Suncoast Parkway / Veterans Expressway split at Exit 13, work on them is nearly complete, with paving one of the notable operations still underway. The overall Veterans Expressway project started in 2013. It expanded the toll road from four to eight overall lanes.

    We would like to propose that the 589 section of the Veterans HWY in Tampa Fl. be named in honor of Senator John McCain. Him, his father and grandfather served our country with high honors and their legacy will be remembered. John was a true hero thinking of others that were held as POW’s before his own release. Thank you for his service!
