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
