FDOT is preparing design plans for future widening of approximately 3.8 miles of I-75 and reconstruction of the I-75/Bee Ridge Road interchange. FDOT will rebuild the interchange from the existing diamond design to a hybrid diverging diamond interchange (DDI) and southbound off-ramp to Cattlemen Road.
