Howard Frankland Bridge

FDOT is rebuilding the existing northbound bridge, which was originally constructed in 1960, and adding capacity to alleviate
traffic congestion.

The most recent plan for the Howard Frankland Bridge was announced in early 2017. Since that time, the Florida Department of Transportation conducted public outreach as part of the Tampa Bay Next process and gathered valuable input to enhance the project.
