The USDOT has released the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for FY 2018 BUILD (Better Utilizing Investments to Leverage Development) Discretionary Grants (https://www.transportation.gov/BUILDgrants). This year $1.5 billion is made available to fund transportation projects.
Pasco County is excited to submit an application for the FY 2018 BUILD Discretionary Grant in order to support the development of an interchange at I-75 at Overpass Road. East Pasco County is growing and becoming a premier regional destination for innovation, economic opportunity, and quality of life. The I-75 at Overpass Road Interchange serves as a gateway to rural north-central Florida and an anchor for economic development in Pasco County. The construction of this project will assist with enhancing mobility and advancing access to opportunity for the region.
This project has garnered strong partnerships from around the region including public agencies, private enterprise, and elected officials. Partners, collaborators, and stakeholders from Pasco County are in agreement that the I-75 at Overpass Road Interchange is a top priority and is crucial to the health of mobility along this growing corridor.
