Project ID: 1000980 | Department ID: TRANS20054 | Contract No.: TBD
This project provides for the design and construction of roadway and traffic improvements at the intersection of Interbay Blvd and S Manhattan Ave. The project extends along S Manhattan Avenue approximately 1500 feet south of the intersection connecting to the developer project which extends to Richardson Ave.
The 0.5-mile segment of S Manhattan Ave from north of Richardson Ave to Interbay Blvd is a 2-lane local, residential roadway with a posted speed of 20 mph and is adjacent to MacDill Air Force Base. S Manhattan Ave is a north-south roadway running parallel to West Shore Blvd and provides an alternate north-south traffic circulation route for the Port Tampa area. This project includes many benefits to the community such as:
• roadway resurfacing to improve the resiliency of the neighborhood access to Interbay Blvd
• construction of a new sidewalk along the east side of S Manhattan Ave
• installation of a mid-block crosswalk located near Richardson Ave
• construction of a new southbound left-turn lane and an eastbound left-turn at the intersection of Interbay Blvd and S Manhattan Ave
The project was awarded a 2020 Defense Infrastructure Grant (DIG) in the amount of $340,000.
