Construction for the New Tampa Boulevard Extension project is set to begin on Monday, June 20, 2011. The project provides for a bridge over Interstate 75 and a two-lane highway between Commerce Park Boulevard and the extension of New Tampa Boulevard. Additional improvements include retaining walls, a bike path, lighting, storm sewer, sidewalk, fencing, hardscape, and landscape.

The extension is approximately 0.7 miles long and spans from termination point of the existing western part of New Tampa Boulevard to the northern termination point of Commerce Park Boulevard within the city limits of New Tampa. The roadway will incorporate a five-foot sidewalk on the south side and a eight-foot wide, multi-use trail on the north side, which will allow neighborhood pedestrian and bicycle traffic to safely cross Interstate 75 without using Bruce B. Downs Boulevard.

The $14 million investment was designed by Kisinger Campo and Associates, and the contractor for the project is Prince Construction. The project is expected to be completed in Summer of 2013.
