Brandon Intersection Project at North Valrico and Sydney Roads will Improve Safety, Capacity
Hillsborough County, Fla. (Oct. 11, 2021) - The Brandon intersection of North Valrico Road and Sydney Road will be redesigned to add capacity and improve safety.
Hillsborough County is designing the project to comply with Vision Zero safety principles and to improve capacity. An engineering study analyzed how to redesign the intersection to help move the high volume of truck traffic through the intersection.
The $2.2 million intersection improvement project will include the following upgrades:
- A left-turn lane in the northbound, southbound, and westbound approaches
- A pedestrian crosswalk and associated curb ramps in the east leg of the intersection
- Curb and gutter at all four corners
- New signal heads to accommodate new left-turn movements
Construction is expected to begin in late 2023 and be complete in mid-2024.
