I don't understand why they couldn't have been building this simultaneously with the Ulmerton Road "improvements." I also wonder why they didn't build this first.

FDOT has long cited that there was no money available for the Gateway Connector, just like they long cited that there was no money available for the Gandy Freeway. The money came along eventually, but in the case of the Gateway Connector, Lord Voldemort pushed it to high priority status and mixed it in with TBX Phase I.

Both of which should have built like 15 years ago.

The Gateway Connector should have been built 15 to 20 years ago. The Gandy Freeway between 4th St N & I-275 should have been done in the 70s, with the entire roadway from the Gandy Bridge to Gulf Blvd elevated by 2000 had the original plans gone through.
