Hillsborough county has put out a proposal to widen I-275 in Tampa and some residents and business owners aren’t pleased about it.

The proposal focuses on widening I-275 from downtown Tampa to the Bearss Avenue exit. Tampa Heights residents are particularly peeved.

The Florida Department of Transportation provides research that show how the proposed changes will improve connectivity to 13 underpasses.

I-275 is a busy interstate. It carries about 170,000 vehicles per day. For perspective, that would be Hillsborough Avenue, Dale Mabry Highway and Brandon Boulevard combined.
