Public has its say on Upper Tampa Bay Trail

Upper Tampa Bay ParkOn September 17, 2014, Hillsborough County’s Parks and Recreation Department held a public workshop on the Upper Tampa Bay Trail. Staffers  sought input on alternatives that could provide a final link between the existing trail terminus at Peterson Road Park and North Mobley Road.

The three alternatives include options that access:

  • the western side of Lake Rodgers Park and runs parallel to Crawley Road
  • the eastern side of Lake Rodgers and exiting on Mobley Road west of Gunn Highway
  • the eastern side of Lake Rodgers Park but cross Gunn Highway providing an eastern access parallel to Mobley Road

County staff is currently analyzing the input received from the public as well as determining environmental, safety, and cost impacts. They expect to recommended a route for this link by early 2015.
