The bridges include:

  • I-75 at Causeway Blvd
  • I -275 over Yukon St.
  • SR 574 (MLK Blvd) over the Hillsborough River
  • SR 60 over the Tampa Bypass Canal
  • SR 60 at the entrance to Tampa International Airport

FDOT says they need to repair, or in some cases, replace bearing pads and plates on these bridges. The pads and plates support the bridge beans but allow for slight movement for thermal expansion.

Construction is expected to begin in 2020.
