Working Together & Winning

As our region continues to grow, it will be more important than ever for us to coordinate plans as a region and agree on priorities for an integrated, multimodal regional network. Thanks to the Sun Coast Transportation Planning Alliance partnership, the region has moved forward on many high-priority projects in each county.



These projects have been awarded federal, state, and/or local dollars, and are in various stages of engineering and construction:
  • Howard Frankland Bridge Replacement
  • Gateway Expressway
  • I-75 Interchange at Big Bend Road
  • I-275/SR 60 Tampa Westshore District Interchange Phase 1 & 2
  • I-275 Safety & Operational Improvements at Downtown Tampa/I-4 Interchange
  • Central Polk Parkway Segment 1
  • CR 557 from US 17/92 to I-4
