I-4 Infrastructure Assessment

County Corridor Preservation Plan The Hillsborough County Corridor Preservation Plan identifies the future arterial and collector roadway improvements needed to support the adopted future land use and transportation plans. As shown in Figure 16 , the 2015 corridor preservation plan has intersection and interchange improvements on I-75 at Sligh Avenue (blue circle) and SR 574/ E Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard (red circle). The plan identifies lane enhancements on several connectors within the study boundary including Moores Lake Road, Sydney Dover Road, CR 579, Williams Road, US 301, N Falkenburg Road, US 92/SR 600, Sligh Avenue, Joe Ebert Road (possible future connection from CR 579/Mango Road to McIntosh Road) SR 574/ E Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, Broadway Avenue, S Kingsway Road, and N Valrico Road. Programmed Improvements Programmed and funded improvements were reviewed from the Hillsborough County Capital Improvements Program (CIP) and FDOT 5-year Work Program. The Hillsborough County CIP includes funded projects within the next 5 years from 2021-2025. As shown in Figure 17 , there are programmed road widenings and resurfacing on or adjacent to segments of main collectors. Roadway and pedestrian/bike programmed intersection point projects are located on or adjacent to the main north to south roadways. Figure 17 does not include utility, feasibility, bridge, traffic signal or community facility projects. Minimal improvements are programmed within the Node Areas for the Hillsborough County CIP. There is one roadway operations and safety project in Node Area 3 at the intersection of US 92/SR 600and Gallagher Road. There are two projects adjacent to I-4 in Node Areas 1 and 2 at CR 579/Mango Road and Pruett Road and Merlot Circle and Williams Road As shown in Figure 17 , FDOT’s 5-year (2021-2025) Work Program includes lane additions, resurfacing, and interchange improvements on I-75 and I-4. Lane additions are also programmed on SR 574/ E Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard from east of S Kingsway Road to McIntosh Road. In 2018, FDOT completed a Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study on US 92 from I-4 to east of the County Line Road. The purpose of the study was to evaluate a multi-lane roadway improvement to accommodate future traffic by adding additional lanes. Hillsborough County Surtax & Pedestrian Facility Projects Funded by the one-cent surtax revenue collected since the referendum passing in November 2018, the 2021 Surtax Project Plan includes projects to improve safety and mobility, expand traffic and transit operations, and reduce congestion countywide. The projects are approved by the independent oversight committee and are not fully funded for construction but are partially funded to complete preliminary phases which may include planning and design. Included in the 2021 plan, there are resurfacing projects connecting to the Nodes Areas on Williams Road, Much Pond Road, McIntosh Road, Moore Lake Road, N Parsons Avenue and Joe Ebert Road. A complete street project including improvements for vehicle capacity, connects US 301 and Williams Road to reduce congestion, improve safety and mobility, and accommodate all forms of travel.
