Upper Tampa Bay Trail grows new legs

UpperTampaBayTrai_mapOver 17 years in the making, construction of two legs of the Upper Tampa Bay Trail will begin by the end of 2013. Fondly referred to as segments “C-1” and “C-2”, the project entails 4.3 miles of trail. C-1 follows Lutz Lake Fern Rd., connecting to more than 50 miles of regional trail at the southern terminus of the Suncoast Trail. C-2 extends from Lutz Lake Fern Rd. south to Keystone Park and Austin Davis Public Library, in the vicinity of Wayne Road. That leaves segments A and B, which will need further study before they can be completed.

The new trail segments are expected to open at the end of 2014. A partnership between Hillsborough County, FDOT and SWFMD are bringing this approximately $6 million asset to our community.
