THEA Spends $1M on Cleaning and Inspecting the Ten-Year-Old Selmon Expressway

WTVT reports that the Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority is spending about $1 million to pressure wash the ten-year-old, five-mile-long Lee Roy Selmon Expressway structure. THEA acknowledges in the article that the project “is mostly about esthetics,” but spokesperson Sue Chrzan adds that “anytime you clean something, you can make sure you [don’t] see cracks forming. It’s easier to inspect it.”
