Upcoming truck restrictions for 21st and 22nd Street Project
NEW DESIGNATED TRUCK ROUTE RESTRICTIONS
On: North 21st and North 22nd Streets
From: State Road 60 (Adamo Drive)
To: State Road 600 (Hillsborough Avenue)
The City of Tampa (City) intends to RESTRICT ACCESS of regulated trucks on the following roadways by amending its Truck Route Ordinance (Section 25-182- Designated Truck Routes Established”):
- East 4th Avenue from Channelside Drive to North 22nd Street
- East 7th Avenue from North 22nd Street to North 34th Street
- North 21st Street from Adamo Drive (SR 60) to East 23rd Avenue
- North 22nd Street from Adamo Drive (SR 60) to East Hillsborough Avenue
Tampa City Council will hold the final reading of the amended Truck Route Ordinance on December 1, 2016.
The truck restrictions on North 21st and North 22nd Streets are being implemented pursuant to the 2011 Roadway Transfer Agreement between the City and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and will be effective December 2016 after FDOT’s construction and formal transfer of the roadways to the City, and after adoption of the amended Truck Route Ordinance by Tampa City Council. The additional truck restrictions on East 4th and East 7th Avenues are necessary to maintain appropriate connectivity to the remaining truck route corridors. Truck traffic can continue to use the Interstate 4 / Selmon Expressway Connector, which provides exclusive truck lanes for direct access to Port Tampa Bay. Included are maps that illustrate the existing and new truck route configurations in the vicinity of Ybor City, Port of Tampa and Palmetto Beach. Additional maps provide recommended routes for truck traffic that bypass the newly restricted corridors based on direction of travel.
