The Florida Department of Transportation reports the following I-75 construction and associated traffic impacts in the Tampa Bay area this week:
- Wesley Chapel/San Antonio, FL – One lane may be closed in each direction of I-75 anywhere from north of County Road 54 (Exit 279) to north of SR 52 (Exit 285) between 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Friday night, October 28 and Sunday through Friday (October 30 – November 4) nights.
- Ridge Manor, FL – One lane may be closed in each direction of I-75 from one mile south of SR 50 (Exit 301) to one mile north of SR 50 between 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Sunday through Thursday (October 30 – November 3) nights.
During some of the I-75 construction night closures, drivers can expect traffic shifts and delays between 7:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. on SR 50 in the I-75 interchange area as traffic may be reduced to one lane in each direction and both directions of traffic placed on the westbound lanes. This will result in two-way traffic on what normally is a two-lane westbound section of roadway.
In addition, all traffic entering and exiting I-75 construction areas may be limited to right turns only. This will mean drivers who normally would be making a left turn movement onto or off the ramps may have to go the opposite direction and make a U-Turn on SR 50 to go in their desired direction. Traffic congestion and delays are expected during the traffic shifts on SR 50 and on the I-75 exit ramps whenever traffic is in this temporary overnight alignment.
