The City of Tampa is engaging in a streets improvement project in the West Riverside Heights neighborhood as part of the Tampa M.O.V.E.S. initiative.  The study area is generally bounded by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd (north), N.

The purpose of the project is to provide mobility choices, connect people to jobs and economic opportunities, create a healthy, sustainable, and resilient future, remove barriers and improve transportation for people who need it most, and increase public safety.  Additionally, this project will review stormwater drainage, roadway resurfacing, traffic calming, and pedestrian and bicycle accessibility.  This includes topics such as stormwater drainage, roadway surfacing, traffic calming and improved pedestrian and bicycle accessibility.
