Be Alert to Traffic Change at I-4 and I-75 Ramp

Interstate 4 to I-75 Interchange | FDOT | Traffic

Starting today, drivers who want to go from eastbound I-4 to northbound I-75 will have a different route.

HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY – Drivers who take the exit ramp from eastbound I-4 to northbound I-75 need to be especially alert.

Starting this morning (April 12), the Florida Department of Transportation has opened a new exit ramp.

This traffic switch directs ramp traffic from eastbound I-4 onto the same ramp system as the westbound I-4 to northbound I-75 traffic movement (which opened March 13) and eliminates one merge point within the I-4/I-75 interchange.

Motorists entering northbound I-75 from I-4 should be alert to a new merge location on the ramp system, just under a mile north of where the two ramp lanes begin running side-by-side. At that point, traffic merges from the right lane to the left lane into one combined auxiliary lane. Traffic in the auxiliary lane can continue north for almost a mile before it has to merge into the mainline travel lanes, just south of the Tampa Bypass Canal.

The combined ramp for both eastbound and westbound access to northbound I-75 is expected to improve northbound traffic flow through the interchange and give motorists more room to merge safely from I-4 onto northbound I-75.
