Project Description

This project provides for operational, safety, and multimodal improvements.

The City of Tampa Mobility Department is working to design the Tampa Palms Boulevard Complete Streets Project. Corridor-wide maintenance, operational, multi-modal, safety, and traffic calming are included in the scope of the planned improvements.  Roadway improvements for the 4-mile loop incorporate upgrades to pedestrian facilities, traffic calming elements, reduced posted speeds, as well as pavement resurfacing.  Details are as follows:

  • Four travel lanes will be maintained with an added 2-foot striped buffer on the outside of each lane (curb and median sides)
  • Travel lanes will be reduced to 10-foot widths which will address speeding issues and improve community safety
  • Shared lane markings will be added to the outside lane reminding drivers that bicyclists also use these lanes
  • Existing crosswalks will be upgraded to special emphasis markings, enhancing pedestrian safety
  • Posted speeds will be 35 mph throughout the corridor
