Boy Scout Blvd. is new and improved thanks to new sidewalks, crosswalks, bike lanes and roadway resurfacing. This pedestrian-friendly face lift is all part of a newly completed $4.6 million transportation project. Resurfacing spread from O’Brien St. to Dale Mabry Hwy in Tampa’s Westshore district. Wider, pedestrian-friendly sidewalks and enhanced crosswalks in the corridor were funded by our partner, Westshore Alliance, through the Westshore Special Services District. They have made an effort to not only enhance bicycle and pedestrian safety, but also create more attractive, livable and accessible areas for pedestrians.
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) began the transformation in summer 2014 and finished the project in June 2015. Kudos to Westshore Alliance as they continue to make significant progress in the areas of transportation in Tampa’s Westshore district. So, what are you waiting for? Hop on your bike or go for a run to check out the new and improved Boy Scout Blvd!
