Fletcher Ave almost complete!

Fletcher_Ave_Ped_ProjectThe Fletcher Avenue complete street project is almost finished after just over a year of work. Hillsborough County’s Public Works Department has been improving the 3.1 mile Fletcher Avenue corridor from Nebraska Ave to Bruce B Downs Blvd. The project included milling and resurfacing, drainage, signalization, utility adjustments, and landscaping. Bicycle lanes have been marked and signed, sidewalks completed, and six midblock crossings constructed at locations where walkers frequently cross Fletcher Ave. New street lighting and public art also have been installed.

Last but certainly not least, the County has launched a pedestrian and bicycle safety education campaign, in both Spanish and English. The MPO is helping with printing costs.
