About this Project
The Florida Department of Transportation undertook this project to improve the access to Interstate 75 at Fowler Avenue (State Road 582).

Improvement highlights for this project included:

  • Milled and resurfaced Fowler Avenue (between the Hillsborough River and the Tampa Bypass Canal) and the I-75 interchange ramps to/from Fowler Avenue.
  • Added a lane to the ramp that goes from eastbound Fowler Avenue to southbound I-75.
  • Realigned the ramp from westbound Fowler Avenue to southbound I-75 to allow for a smoother merge with the eastbound Fowler Avenue ramp traffic.
  • Widened northbound Morris Bridge Road at Fowler Avenue to accommodate a left turn lane, a through-lane, and a right turn lane.
  • Constructed shoulders as needed along Fowler Avenue, Morris Bridge Road, and the I-75 ramps.
