SR 56 will be closed to all traffic at I-75 from approximately 11 p.m. Friday, April 1 to sometime during daylight hours on Sunday, April 3. No traffic will be permitted to travel through the work zone across I-75.
SR 56 traffic will be detoured using SR 56, Bruce B. Downs Blvd. (SR 581), and SR 54/CR 54 (Wesley Chapel Boulevard) as shown in the map below.
Why will SR 56 be closed? The closure is needed to switch the roadway to the Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI) traffic pattern on April 3, 2022. Note: The DDI will not be at full-capacity until closer to project completion this summer as the contractor will have more work to do to open an additional lane on both eastbound and westbound SR 56 and another turn lane from the northbound I-275/I-75 exit ramp onto westbound SR 56.
During the above closure period, two ramps will be available to use at the I-75/SR 56 interchange: the eastbound SR 56 entrance ramp onto southbound I-75 and the northbound I-275/I-75 exit ramps onto eastbound SR 56. All other traffic wishing to use the I-75 / SR 56 interchange will be directed via detour signs to use the I-75 interchange at SR 54/C
