Exit 59: FL 56 to Wesley Chapel and
the Northern Terminus of Interstate 275

The northernmost segment of Interstate 275 from Bearss Avenue northward to today's junction with Interstate 75 was constructed in 1964 as a part of the original Interstate 75. It retains its six lane configuration all the way to just before FL 56, which features a dedicated right exit only lane to FL 56. Beyond the exit drop, Interstate 275 northbound continues with two northbound lanes for the grand finale across Interstate 75, then going under County Line Road and crossing into Pasco County and the two lanes merge in to northbound Interstate 75.

This segment features two different overcrossings. One of these overcrossings is at Nebraska Avenue (US 41) where it goes over both US 41 and a CSX Railroad track; the overcrossing is high just like the overcrossing at Busch Blvd (Exit 50). The other overcrossing takes Livingston Avenue over Interstate 275; Livingston Avenue is an increasingly heavily traveled road with no access to Interstate 275. Beyond Livingston Avenue, Interstate 275 makes its final trajectory northward towards Interstate 75.

The Interstate 275/75 interchange (commonly referred to as "the apex") at the Hillsborough/Pasco county line was constructed around 1982 when Interstate 75 was extended further southward towards Naples and over the Alligator Alley to Ft. Lauderdale and Miami. The ramps connecting both Interstate 275 and Interstate 75 to FL 56 in Wesley Chapel were built in 2012 and the ramp extensions were completed in October 2015. The FL 56 interchange at Interstate 75 was completed in June 2002, as FL 56 was a new road being built as growth in the Wesley Chapel area of Pasco County kept pace. Prior to Interstate 75's Miami extension, this was once a continuous four lane segment of the original Interstate 75 built in 1964.
