Spruce Street Ditch Closure & Trail

Project Overview

This study evaluates the feasibility of enclosing the existing stormwater ditches to implement a multimodal trail between Manhattan Avenue to Grady Avenue. The open ditch system along the north side of Spruce Street has been documented to experience flooding conditions such that the high water level exceeds the ditch capacity and floods Spruce Street. The flood condition potentially presents health and safety concerns that will be addressed through the closure of the open ditch.

If you have any questions regarding the design plans, please reach out to the City’s Project Manager: Cal Hardie, P.E., Calvin.Hardie@tampagov.net or (813) 274-8514
