Florida Department of Transportation District Seven Chooses American for Improvements to I-75 in Hillsborough County

American has been selected by FDOT District Seven to design improvements along I-75 from south of SR 60 at the existing CD slip ramp to south of the CSX bridge. This 1.5-mile project will improve safety and congestion through the corridor. This project provides for the realignment of the northbound I-75 on-ramp from the existing CD road south of SR 60 to create a 3,740-foot barrier-separated ramp along I-75.

The eastbound SR 60 to northbound I-75 loop ramp entrance from the SR 60 mainline will be realigned to share the existing eastbound SR 60 to southbound I-75 ramp to create a dedicated eastbound SR 60 to I-75 on-ramp. Retaining wall will be constructed along eastbound SR 60 under the first span of the I-75 bridges to allow for the new on-ramp alignment with barrier separation. The new alignment will rebuild the existing loop ramp and will then connect to the new barrier separated CD road creating a two-lane barrier separated ramp. The existing I-75 northbound bridge (#100496) will be widened to accommodate this new barrier separated two-lane ramp which will tie into I-75 north of SR 60.

Additional work includes drainage, utility coordination, geotechnical, permitting, lighting, and ITS. Design will begin in April and our team expects design completion in 2018.

With roots dating back to 1987, American specializes in planning, design, and construction engineering inspection of transportation facilities.
