Safer streets coming to the Heights
Two main north-south roadways through the heart of Tampa's urban center — Florida Avenue and Tampa Street — are about to get a major makeover to improve bike and pedestrian safety.
- Funded through an $18 million federal grant to the Florida Department of Transportation, announced Tuesday, the plan will affect the historic neighborhoods of Tampa Heights and Seminole Heights.
Details: The makeover to improve safety along the Heights Mobility Corridor will add a multi-use path on Tampa Street, as well as:
- Widen sidewalks and fix the drainage issues along Florida between downtown and Waters Ave.
- Add pedestrian crossings and bike safety measures.
- Change the outside travel lane to an exclusive transit lane for buses between Downtown Tampa and USF.
