Spring 3-1978


Here is another aerial photograph of downtown Tampa. The major body of water in the background is known as Tampa Bay. Running right through the middle of this picture is State Road 93 and Interstate 275. As part of the Florida Department of Transportation, State Road 93 acts as a hidden designator for Interstate 275. I-275 is around 178 miles and spans the states of Florida, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee. In the state of Florida, it starts at Interstate 75, runs through St, Petersburg and Tampa, and then reunites with Interstate 75 in Lutz.
