Participation is FREE and includes opportunities for team-building, fun competitions, and prize drawings for your staff who join in.

I-275 Operational Improvements project progressing toward early completion
The $31 million project designed to provide congestion relief in the Westshore area by adding lanes to I-275 and several interchange ramps is making great progress during this period of unprecedented low traffic volumes. Essential, critical work has been taking place, including expanding the northbound I-275 bridges over SR 60 and West Shore Boulevard.  Lane widening is taking place in several project areas - but is most noticeable in the section between the Howard Frankland Bridge and SR 60. All the operational improvements included in the project are expected to finish ahead-of-schedule, likely this summer.
For more information on this I-275 improvement project between the Howard Frankland Bridge and Lois Avenue, visit FDOT's project page.
