SARASOTA, Fla. -- Designs for a new University Parkway interchange and Interstate 75 could be completed sooner then expected. 

According to published reports, a final draft of a diverging diamond will likely be submitted by February.  Completion wasn't expected until May of next year.

The Florida Department of Transportation says with the designs being done early, work can possibly begin as early as July or August. 

The goal is to have the project complete by fall of 2017 before the rowing championships come to Nathan Benderson Park.
