Widening of I - 75 from Fowler Avenue north to S.R. 52 will begin in segments as "funding becomes available". Included in the project plans are modifications to the interchanges at highway 54, and S.R. 52, and S.R. 56 in Pasco County. The Department of Transportation will be holding a public meeting on the I-75 expansion on Thursday at the activity center of the Victorious Life Church in Wesley Chapel (5:00 p.m.).
That's the good news. The possible bad news is that the funding for roads at the state level may be altered with the state budget. Those cuts not only might affect the schedule of the I-75 widening, but also the extension of S.R. 56 and the widening of S.R. 54 in Pasco County.
