FDOT spending $58M to widen I-75 in Charlotte County

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.- The final segment of Interstate 75 widening from the Florida-Georgia border to Southwest Florida will begin construction in 2018, Gov. Rick Scott announced on Monday.

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will provide more than $58 million in funding to widen Interstate 75 from four to six-lanes south of Jones Loop Road to US 17 in Charlotte County, according to the governor’s office.

“The Interstate 75 widening project will help ease traffic flow and keep families and visitors safe as they travel through our state,” Scott said.
