More than 60 pedestrian projects featured in Westshore Alliance Action Plan

Westshore Alliance Action Plan identifies new projects including trail/linear park on Grady Ave. north of Spruce St.

By Michael Maurino, Westshore Alliance

Bicycle boulevards, trails, sidewalks, and linear parks are topping the list of transportation priorities included in Westshore Alliance’s newly published Transportation Action Plan.

More than 100 transportation improvements that Westshore residents and businesses will need in the next 25 years are identified in the plan. Pedestrian improvements throughout Westshore account for more than 60% of these projects.

Nearly all the projects in the action plan are vetted by the Hillsborough Metropolitan Planning Organization, Hillsborough Area Regional Transit, Florida Department of Transportation, and Hillsborough and Tampa transportation planners. However, the projects have never existed in one place, until now.

In addition to pedestrian projects, the plan identifies transit and roadway improvements that will also serve as a blueprint for Westshore transportation planning to 2045. Improving transportation options for Westshore employees, residents, and visitors has been a top priority of the Westshore Alliance since the organization was founded more than 35 years ago.
