Ribbon cutting for New Tampa road

 

Tampa, Florida -- Mayor Buckhorn will cut the ribbon on the completed New Tampa Boulevard Bridge on Wednesday, February 27, 2013 at 10:30 a.m. The ribbon cutting will take place on the West Meadows side of the bridge, at the intersection of Meadow Pine Drive and New Tampa Boulevard.

Mayor Buckhorn says the widening along Bruce B. Downs will make a huge difference for New Tampa residents, "It will give the residents of New Tampa the traffic relief they deserve. The project gives motorists, pedestrians, and even first responders an alternative route to take."

The bridge is anticipated to be open shortly after the ribbon cutting on February 27, 2013. Construction began in May 2011, and was not scheduled to be complete until July 2013. The total cost for the bridge is $12.8 million.

The New Tampa Boulevard Bridge provides an easterly and westerly connection between Bearss Ave. and SR. 56. This connection allows motorists with local destinations an option other than traveling through the I-75/Bruce B. Downs interchange. It also improves emergency access for the area.
