  • Implement Comprehensive Plan and Long Range Transportation Plan

    • Business Centers

    • Urban Villages

    • Mixed-Use Corridor Villages

    • Primary Transit Corridors/Facilities

  • Develop Multimodal “Grid”

    • USF Area

    • Westshore

  • Phase II Focus:

    • South Tampa

    • Central Tampa

  • Phase III:

    • New Tampa

Phased Projects

Phase I Projects

Phase II Projects


Phased I & II Focus on Commuters

  • Generally Adults

  • More Confident Cyclists

  • Preference for On-Street Bike Facilities

  • Preference for Travel along Collector and Minor Arterial Roadways e.g.:

    • North Boulevard

    • Columbus Drive

    • 34th Street

    • Etc…

  • Develop City-wide Grid


Candidate Project Types

  • Complete Sidewalk Connections

  • Enhance Major Roadway Crossings

  • Off-Road Trails

  • Marked Bike Lanes

  • Shared Lane Arrows

  • Side paths

  • Road Diets

  • Roadway Enhancements


Walk/Bike III: New Tampa

  • New Tampa:

  • Review Network

  • Identify Opportunities

  • Consider Trail Connections


Walk/Bike III: New Tampa


Walk/Bike III: Green ARTery

  • Green Artery “Perimeter” Trail:

  • Central Tampa Loop

  • Recreational and Novice Users

  • Connect Neighborhood Assets

  • Methods include:

    • Bike Boulevards

    • Linear Parks

    • Multi-Use Paths


Green ARTery Alignment


Facility Types

Multi-Use Path

Neighborhood Greenway

Park Trail

Trailheads


Multi-Use Path

  • For all users including pedestrians, cyclists, dog-walkers, families, etc.

  • Appropriate along routes with higher traffic volumes and speeds

  • Provide physical barrier between path and vehicular traffic


Park Trail

  • Wide pathway that goes through city parks or other green spaces

  • Will connect Central Tampa’s natural resources (especially Hillsborough River)

  • Create awareness to green assets

  • Create unique recreational experience


Neighborhood Greenway

  • Also known as a “bike boulevard”

  • Typical neighborhood street with appropriate safety and traffic conditions for cyclists

  • Marked by sign postings and traffic calming treatments

  • Drivers slow down and have a greater awareness for cyclists, or choose a different route


Trailheads

  • Identify the trail and provide public access

  • Include park structures, kayak launches, bike parking facilities, outdoor seating, public art and water taxi facilities.

  • Strategically located so the trail is highly visible throughout the city.

  • Provide a community hub for neighborhoods throughout Central Tampa.


Facility Types

Multi-Use Path

Neighborhood Greenway

  • Advantages

  • Bikes and pedestrians out of the roadway

  • Lessens “NIMBY” concerns (allows for trail to be aligned along larger roads rather than neighborhood streets)

  • Does not impact neighborhood traffic patterns

  • Challenges

  • Cost of 8 – 12ft pathway construction (including potential drainage impacts)

  • Does not help to implement neighborhood traffic Calming

  • Bikes riding against traffic along trail are at higher risk of side-street/driveway traffic conflicts

  • Advantages

  • Lower cost

  • Reduced thru traffic and speeds on neighborhood streets

  • 2-way stop signs allow bikes to continue along trail at minor intersections

  • Aligns trail along lower-speed/lower-volume neighborhood streets

  • Challenges

  • Traffic may need to be diverted at intersections

  • Traffic calming treatments may reduce convenience for residents

  • Bikes in roadway must share space with cars driving to/from homes

  • “NIMBY” concerns since trail uses neighborhood streets
