This project provides for traffic calming and bike and pedestrian improvements for this segment of the Green ARTery.
Green ARTery’s goal is to connect a network of trails and paths to the Hillsborough River, McKay Bay, neighborhood assets, neighborhood parks, natural springs, tree-canopied streets, public art, and other attractions that traverse Tampa’s beautiful central core. The mission of the neighborhood-based effort is to identify, enhance, and expand pedestrian/wheelchair, bike paths, parks, Greenways and trail systems that safely connect green spaces through the City, while emphasizing the beauty of the City’s existing assets and acknowledging the need to continue building upon that beauty. City and Metropolitan Planning Organization’s Walk-Bike Plan Phase V concept was for a connected trail system from downtown Tampa, running east to Ybor City, north to the Hillsborough River, and west and south to the northern end of the Tampa Riverwalk. These areas are some of Tampa’s most historic neighborhoods, contain beautiful parks, and are booming with up-and-coming shopping districts. The Perimeter Trail will provide an alternative to driving to these destinations and instead provides a healthy way to safely stroll, skate, or cycle around the urban core.
Segment D (1.376 miles) proposes the following improvements:
- Bicycle boulevard markings on Park Dr, Park Cir, 12th St, Patterson St, Hamilton Heath Dr, Van Dyke Pl, and Hollywood St.
- Share-the Road markings on Nebraska Ave from Hollywood Dr to Sitka St.
- New 5-foot wide sidewalk on the east side of Van Dyke Pl from Hamilton Heath Dr to the Hillsborough River.
