Manhattan Ave (Richardson Ave to Interbay Blvd)

Primary Details


This project provides for the design of roadway construction plans for an existing unimproved right of way to provide an alternative north-south traffic circulation route for the Port Tampa Area.

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.
