Here's what you need to know about the Selmon Extension ahead of Monday's opening

After nearly 2.5 years of construction, the Selman Extension over Gandy Boulevard is just about ready to open. Starting Monday, drivers will have the option to take the $230 million roadway project's connector from Brandon to Pinellas County. "That's all paid for out of our toll revenues and our toll bonds. We didn't get any tax funds to build that project, nor do we get tax funds to build our other projects," said Joe Waggoner, the executive director for the Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority.
