New bridge connector in New Tampa?

Tampa, FL -- Tampa transportation officials are looking at constructing a new bridge to connect New Tampa Boulevard around West Meadows to Tampa Palms on the west side of I-75.


If built, this bridge would travel over some wetlands and include an 8-foot wide trail for pedestrians and bicyclists. 


Officials note this is not an east-west connector which has been proposed before for the region. That project stalled out per lack of funding.


Some residents are concerned this bridge connector would bring speeding traffic through neighborhoods. The city did conduct a Traffic Safety Study recently on this and had meetings with residents of West Meadows and Tampa Palms.


Also being discussed, a potential traffic light at New Tampa Boulevard and Wood Sage Drive especially if traffic flow is increased.
