I-75 in Florida- a long and winding road to today’s route

I-75’s path through Florida was first authorized in 1955. It was completed in 1964 before any other Florida interstate. But then the rapid growth of southwest Florida and the need to link another interstate to southeast Florida set off a long drawn-out process to extend the highway. It was finally completed in 1992. On this week’s Florida History Podcast we discuss that long process.

  1. Thanks for answering my question on episode 96 about whether Flagler had the shanty town burned. I realize that there is no definitive proof that connects him to it. Appreciate your research.
