The Bridges of Interstate 275

Two major bridges in the Tampa Bay region carry Interstate 275: The Howard Frankland and the Sunshine Skyway. The Howard Frankland Bridge carried Interstate 275 traffic from its original opening in 1960 when the Howard Frankland carried Interstate 4, while the Sunshine Skyway has a lot of history to it from its beginnings as a two lane cantilever through truss span carrying US 19 to the Sunshine Skyway we know today as an integral part of Interstate 275.

The Tampa Bay Regional Transit Page at Interstate275Florida.com

The Tampa Bay region has so many highways including Interstate 275. Despite so many widenings that have taken place, Interstate 275 gets jam packed both during and (increasingly) outside the morning and evening commutes. Unfortunately, the Tampa Bay region lacks a good mass transit system despite the fact we have HARTline (Hillsborough Area Regional Transit) and PSTA (Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority). The answer is right here!
