Tampa, FL -- Despite weather extremes from 2010, with record setting cold to high summer heat, construction on Bruce B. Downs from Palm Springs Boulevard to Pebble Creek Boulevard then to County Line Road is just about on schedule.


Installation of the large storm sewers and water mains were a few weeks behind schedule because of some of the inclement weather.


But the drier than normal conditions to finish the rainy season and on into the winter gave contractors time to get back on schedule.


The main artery through New Tampa will expand to eight lanes featuring two left-turn lanes and a single right-turn lane. 


The right lane on each direction of Bruce B. Downs would also function as an HOV and mass transit lane for buses during certain times of the day.


The widening is in four segments:



  • Segment B runs from Palm Springs Boulevard to Richmond Place Drive

  • Segment C runs from Richmond Place Drive to Pebble Creek Boulevard. 

These two segments are slated for completion in September of 2012. 



  • Segment A runs from Bearss Avenue to Palm Springs Boulevard

  • Segment D runs from Pebble Creek Boulevard to County Line Road 

Both segments are slated for completion well after segments B and C.
