The Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority has approved $2.5 million for enhancements to the Selmon Greenway. Upgrades will include pocket parks, bike racks, landscaping and other amenities. Lighting additions will improve safety and visibility, while benches and public art will enhance the experience for bicyclists and pedestrians alike.
Work has already begun, with the Authority adding signs to direct people on foot and wheels to the 15-foot wide trail.
The Selmon Greenway extends 1.7 miles under the Selmon Expressway, providing a vital east-west connection across downtown. The greenway connects many of downtown Tampa’s popular entertainment, educational, and business venues. Upgrades will also provide opportunities for stormwater improvements.
