analysis of the dot com. democrats debate in charleston south carolina. if you've been on northbound i-275, across the howard frankland bridge this week, then you know it's a traffic nightmare! it all started when the florida department of transportation shifted traffic into new lanes. our road warrior hilary zalla is getting answers about why these new lanes are causing more problems: hilary: this is what traffic looked like on the howard frankland bridge going towards tampa this morning...and this is the st. pete side of the bridge. drivers tell me their commute on i-275 into tampa has been 20 to 30 minutes longer this week. on tuesday, fdot shifted traffic to new lanes on northbound i-275 at dale mabry highway. since then, rush hour delays have gotten worse...and midday back ups have started. "it's frustrating" "it gets pretty hectic sometimes for us" the new alignment is straighter and on permanent pavement. but two of the three lanes are now only 11 feet wide, instead
add on the extremely short merges at the dale mabry and himes entrance ramps...and you have the perfect recipe for major congestion. "its frustrating because i'm always at least 15 to 20 minutes late" it' normal for traffic to get worse a few days after a traffic shift, but what if it doesn't get better? fdot says they're engineers are studying the situation. if the problem persists, they may try to widen the lanes, but there's not a lot of permanent pavement to work with. "they need to rethink everything. they need to look at it over again what theyve done. i think they still need to make changes" hilary: there is an end in sight...in 6-9 weeks barring any rain delays...a 4th northbound lane will open and all lanes will go back to a 12 foot width. the dale mabry highway merge lane will also get longer. but until any relief comes your way, be sure to allow for plenty of extra time on i-275 during rush hour. i'll be watching the traffic situation very closely in the coming days and keep you updated. im road warrior hilary zalla for 10
