I-4 Connector Opens for Race

Posted: Updated:

The I-4 Connector doesn't open for vehicles until next month,  but it opened to foot traffic on Saturday.

The city hosted the"Run the Connector 5k."

It let runners race across the new elevated roadway, and gave them an amazing view of downtown Tampa and the rest of the area.

The first part of the race was a little rough, uphill and into the wind.

But runners say it was worth it, just to get that view.

The connector links I-4 with the Crosstown Expressway.

It's expected to ease traffic through Tampa and Ybor City.

It should open to vehicle traffic, next month.
