The department's contractor, Lane Construction, will begin construction activities as part of the I-275 Capacity Improvement project in Tampa.

The $85.3 million project will add one lane in each direction to I-275 from north of I-4 to north of Hillsborough Avenue (US 92) using the department’s existing right-of-way.

Other improvements include constructing noise barrier walls along most of the corridor, installing fencing and Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) devices, and reconstructing the underpasses at Floribraska Avenue, Lake Avenue, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, Chelsea Street, Osborne Avenue, and Hillsborough Avenue to provide wider sidewalks and bright underdeck lighting.

Construction activities are taking place during the daytime and nighttime hours. Work requiring lane closures will occur at night between 9 p.m. and 6:30 a.m. Occasionally, interstate ramps may close at night between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m. for overhead signage and underpass work. Advanced warning signs and electronic message boards will assist motorists traveling through the area.

Construction activities to start in the fall of 2021 and finish in early 2026.
