SWFBUD Supports Fla DOT Plan For Causeway Bridge And Trail

SWFBUD strongly supports the Florida DOT building a Courtney Campbell Bridge trail, including a new bicycle-pedestrian bridge alongside the high span on the Tampa side of the causeway. Check out what it's like to bike the high bridge now -- the shoulder is a mere four feet wide. I believe construction of the causeway trail is scheduled to begin in 2012.

Why is a bicycle-pedestrian bridge on the Tampa-Clearwater causeway so vital? Because it would offer much safer access to the causeway. Here's SWFBUD supporters Nick and Ellen biking on the causeway frontage road this morning. It was a great ride and look at this incredible cycling access to the Bay.
