The Florida Department of Transportation (DOT) is planning construction for a new interchange at I-75 and Overpass Road with a flyover like the one on Bruce B. Downs Boulevard that opened in 2008. The goal of the project is to avoid traffic issues similar to those that occurred at the State Road 56 and Interstate 75 interchange. “We applaud the state for being proactive as to the future needs of this interchange. This will certainly be beneficial to commuters and locals alike,” said Hope Allen, president and CEO of the North Tampa Chamber.
