This project includes 3 main components:
SR 690, a new 4-lane tolled expressway connection from US 19 to the west of I-275. The new facility will be an elevated roadway built in the median of existing 118th Avenue North allowing commuters a direct connection.
SR 686A, a new 4 lane elevated tolled expressway from the Bayside Bridge to just west of I-275. Improvements will be built in the median of Roosevelt Boulevard between the Bayside Bridge and Ulmerton Road. A new interchange at Ulmerton Road will be constructed as part of this project and a new roadway will continue south through the old Sunshine Speedway property until it merges with SR 690.
I-275 will be widened to add toll lanes in each direction along the median next to the existing lanes from south of Gandy Boulevard to 4th Street North with a rebuilt interchange at Roosevelt Boulevard.
