This project will fully reconstruct Tampa’s Westshore Interchange (I-275/SR 60) with a modern design and added capacity with general use and express lanes. The updated design includes flyover ramps providing better traffic operations including the replacement of the existing loop ramp from eastbound SR 60 to northbound I-275.
Additional improvements include:
- Widening I-275 to construct two new express lanes in each direction and reconstruct the general use lanes.
- Widening SR 60 to add additional capacity.
- Constructing a new flyover ramp from the Howard Frankland Bridge to westbound SR 60 towards the Tampa International Airport.
- Adding a new on-ramp from Reo Street to southbound I-275.
- Reconnecting three local roadways at Reo Street, Occident Street, and Trask Street to help improve local traffic circulation.
- Aesthetic treatments and shared use path connectivity to the existing trail network and to the new shared use path currently under construction as part of the Howard Frankland Bridge project.
Once complete, the express lanes will provide drivers with a new choice and reliable travel times.
The design will also accommodate future transit along I-275.
The construction contract for Tampa’s Westshore Interchange Reconstruction project has been awarded to the Superior-Lane Joint Venture.
Construction activities are anticipated to begin in 2024.
