Tampa, Florida -- Motorists traveling on the Veterans Expressway should expect nightly detours at the Hutchison Road and Gunn Highway ramps this week.

Beginning at 9 p.m. on Aug. 26, and continuing through 6 a.m., Friday morning, drivers can expect detours at the following on-and off-ramps:

August 26 and 27:

  • Hutchison Road northbound on-ramp will be closed.  Follow the detour at Wilcox to Lakeshore and enter the Veterans northbound at Van Dyke Road.
  • Hutchison  Road southbound off-ramp will be closed.  Take the Van Dyke Road off-ramp and follow the detour to Wilcox back to Hutchison Road.

August 28 and 29

  • The Gunn Highway northbound on-ramp will be closed.  Follow Gunn Highway to Ehrlich Road and enter the Veterans Expressway.
  • The Gunn Highway southbound off-ramp will be closed.  Exit at Ehrlich Road and follow the detour to Gunn Highway.

The closures are necessary to install foundations for the new all-electronic toll gantries.  The Veterans Expressway will be converted to cashless tolling in the spring of 2014.
