About this Project
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has completed improvements to State Road 60/Memorial Highway from I-275 to the Courtney Campbell Parkway interchange, in the vicinity of Tampa International Airport (TPA). The project also extended west one mile onto the Courtney Campbell Parkway (S.R. 60) and north to the Veterans Expressway (Toll 589). This entire project was known as the Tampa Airport Interchanges project. See map.

The Spruce Street/S.R. 60 interchange was improved to a four-level interchange and the Courtney Campbell/S.R. 60 interchange was improved to a three-level directional interchange. This configuration eliminated S.R. 60 traffic signals within the Courtney Campbell interchange and on the causeway at the Hyatt entrance (Bayport Drive). It also provided a two lane frontage road system for access to the Hyatt property. The new interchange configuration features the separation of local and express traffic with collector/distributor (C/D) roads and express lanes. This system is also expected to help reduce congestion on the interstate ramps within the area and improve access to Tampa International Airport.
