46th Street Walk-Bike Improvements Project (E. Busch Blvd to E. Fowler Ave)

Project Overview

The 1.5-mile segment of 46th St from Busch Blvd to Fowler Ave is a 2‐lane (one travel lane in each direction) Collector roadway with a posted speed of 35 mph and has an average daily traffic volume of 3,880 vehicles per day. 46th St is a north/south roadway running parallel to McKinley Dr. This project is supported as documented and prioritized in the MPO‐City of Tampa Walk‐Bike Plan Phase I – Final Report.
Based on the geometrics of this roadway, the crash patterns, and field reviews, the proposed improvements are summarized as follows:

  • Install shared lane markings from Busch Blvd to Bougainvillea Ave; 
  • Widen the sidewalk to construct a shared-use path from Bougainvillea Ave to Fowler Ave. 
  • Safety improvements at 46th Street and Linebaugh Avenue.
