Officials from the Florida Department of Transportation welcomed the public Thursday night to discuss the proposed reconfiguration of the Interstate 75/University Parkway interchange.
More than 200 people came to the Lakewood Ranch Holiday Inn to review site plans and see a video explaining how the proposed diverging diamond interchange would work.
"This is the first diverging diamond interchange in the state," project engineer Kevin Ingle said. "We have many more behind this (under design)."
FDOT has completed most of the design for the roughly $60 million project. FDOT officials expect to have design finalized in January or February and to start construction in summer 2015 if funding is in place.
