About

This design-build project will construct a new interstate interchange on I-75 at Overpass Road approximately 3.5 miles south of SR 52 in Pasco County. 

The new diamond interchange will include a flyover ramp for westbound Overpass Road access onto southbound I-75. 

To accommodate the new interchange, Overpass Road will be widened from two lanes to four lanes between the interstate and Old Pasco Road and six lanes between the interstate and Boyette Road. Blair Drive will be realigned to connect with Old Pasco Road.  McKendree Road will be realigned to connect with Boyette Road. 

Project Update: Construction activities began October 26, 2020 and are anticipated to be completed in the summer of 2023. Initial construction is focusing on local roads. In the southwest project area, a new neighborhood access road has been constructed and opened (on February 5, 2021) at Old Pasco Road to replace the existing Blair Drive connection to Overpass Road. In the northeast quadrant, McKendree Road has been realigned to connect to Boyette Road (opened on February 5, 2021), just north of Overpass Road.


ROAD CLOSURE NOTICE!

Overpass Road is CLOSED until 2022
The section of Overpass Road between Old Pasco Road and Boyette Road closed to all traffic on Monday morning, February 8, 2021. The road is expected to be closed for approximately one year as the existing bridge over I-75 is removed and a new bridge is constructed. 

DETOUR ROUTE: A signed detour directs traffic around the closed section of Overpass Road using Old Pasco Road, Wesley Chapel Boulevard (CR 54/SR 54), and Vandine Road/Boyette Road. Detour Map
