WESLEY CHAPEL, Fla. – The SR 56 entrance ramp onto northbound I-75 may be closed between 10 p.m. Monday, November 28, and 5 a.m. Tuesday, November 29, weather permitting.
Drivers will be detoured to enter from Wesley Chapel Boulevard.
Here are the detour routes:
- Eastbound SR 56 onto northbound I-75: Continue east past the closed ramp to SR 581 / Bruce B. Downs Boulevard. Turn left and go north on SR 581. At SR 54 / Wesley Chapel Boulevard, turn left and go west to the entrance ramp onto northbound I-75.
- Westbound SR 56 onto northbound I-75: Continue west past the closed ramp to CR 54 / Wesley Chapel Boulevard. Turn right and go northeast on CR 54. After passing under I-75, turn left onto the entrance ramp to northbound I-75.
This project has reconfigured the I-75 / SR 56 interchange between CR 54 and Cypress Ridge Boulevard in Pasco County. The existing diamond interchange has been modified and converted to a diverging diamond interchange (DDI).
The main change was to diverge (cross) SR 56 traffic to the left side of the road through the interchange, and then cross vehicles back over to the right side of the road on the opposite side of the interchange.
The improvements will help to alleviate traffic congestion at this interchange to reduce travel time for motorists in this rapidly growing area.
