Groundbreaking to be held for Downtown Riverwalk Expansion -- Construction set to begin on the next two segments
Business and community leaders will join Mayor Pam Iorio for a groundbreaking ceremony for the next two segments of the Tampa Riverwalk -- the Brorein Street Underpass and the BB&T property. The event will take place at 10 a.m. on March 29, 2011 at the BB&T property (vacant lot) just north of Brorein Street (130 South Ashley Drive).
This project will extend the waterfront pedestrian walkway from USF Park another 550-feet to the north, via a safe under-the-bridge pathway and then overland up to the CapTrust Building.
The design consultant for this project is AECOM / EDAW. The construction contract has be awarded to Johnson Brothers, LLC. The total project costs is $3.2 million and is anticipated to be completed by late April 2012.
