I-275 Innovation Corridor

I-275 provides a convenient route for commuters, residents and tourists, but with an abundance of key destinations, congestion leads to traffic delays.

I-275 is a conduit of regional mobility.

The USF area and the surrounding innovation district is a growing healthcare and economic center. This north-south interstate corridor is critical to the efficient movement of people and goods throughout the Tampa Bay area and the state.

Improvements to the I-275 Innovation Corridor provide:

  •  Vital connectivity to regional interstates including I-75 and I-4
  •  Integration with multimodal choices under development across our region
  •  Enhanced travel times to healthcare and hospitals, education, tourist destinations, entertainment venues and employment centers
  •  Access to the University of South Florida and the Innovation District
