Hillsborough objects to tolls on expanded I-75

“The proposal to add new lanes to I-75 has been around for more than a decade. The state kicked off the planning in 2008 and the state held its first public hearing in 2010. The project, however, went on hiatus for six years during and after the Great Recession . . . plans call for adding two express lanes in each direction within the existing highway right of way along 41 miles of I-75 at a total cost of $2.64 billion.”

ESRP Corp.: There are two segments. Segment 1 is between Moccasin Wallow Road and US 301 (this segment includes a proposed DDI at Gibsonton Drive). Segment 2 is between US 301 and Bruce B. Downs Blvd (this segment involves work on eight existing interchanges). See More . . .
