From 970 WFLA: The Florida Department of Transportation feels your pain when it comes to driving through the construction area of I-275 between the Howard Frankland Bridge and the Hillsborough River.
Transportation officials want to offer an incentive to get drivers to carpool and relieve some of the congestion. It's called Startup 275. The first 500 commuters who sign up to carpool through that area at least 12 days a month will get a $25 Visa gift card each month.
The construction through that area of I-275 is expected to last four years. Click here to sign up for the Startup 275 program.
