TAMPA, Fla. — The City of Tampa is planning changes to Floribraska Avenue in Tampa Heights to make the road safer for drivers and people who walk and bike.
The City of Tampa’s Mobility Department will be holding an interactive live event online to discuss their plans for Floribraska Avenue from Tampa Street to 9th Street.
The virtual meeting will take place on August 25 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The city staff will be able to respond to project-related questions and concerns following the presentation.
This project re-configures the existing four-lane undivided roadway into a complete street with two 10-feet travel lanes separated by a two-way left-turn center lane. There will also be an on-road, bidirectional cycle track with a raised separator on the southern side of the road.
The proposed improvements also include wider sidewalks, raised pedestrian refuge islands, and crosswalks at both Jefferson Street and Central Avenue.
“This is an important project to our neighborhood and our city and we want to ensure that the project takes the needs of our neighborhood into consideration, especially the residents who live on or immediately near Floribraska,” leaders with the Tampa Heights Civic Association said on an event invite for the virtual meeting on Facebook.
