WESLEY CHAPEL, Fla. – The southbound I-75 Exit 275 ramp to SR 56 may be closed from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday through Friday nights (March 28 – April 2), weather permitting.
Detour Route to SR 56: Use Exit 279 to SR 54/CR 54. At the bottom of the ramp, turn left and go east on SR 54. Turn right onto SR 581 (Bruce B. Downs Boulevard) and go south to SR 56.
This project will reconfigure the I-75/SR 56 interchange between CR 54 and Cypress Ridge Boulevard in Pasco County. The existing diamond interchange will be modified and converted to a diverging diamond interchange (DDI).
The main change will be 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 changes will help to alleviate traffic congestion at this interchange to reduce travel time for motorists in this rapidly growing area.
