Attend Tuesday Meeting on US 301 Improvements (Which Include Bike Lanes)

The local Florida DOT office is holding a public information meeting on proposed improvements to US 301/State Road 41 on Tuesday from 5 pm to 7 pm at the FDOT District 7 office at 11201 N. McKinley Drive in Tampa -- just south of the USF campus.

The proposed improvements are from south of the Tampa Bypass Canal Trail to north of Fowler Avenue.

For bicyclists, you should know that the proposal includes widening 301 from 2 lanes to 4 lanes, with sidewalks and bicycle facilities (which I guess means bike lanes).

Please attend and advise the DOT how important it is to have safe bike lanes on roads whenever they are improved.
