Public hearing on widening Cross Creek Boulevard is Nov. 3

CROSS CREEK — Residents are invited to learn more about plans to widen Cross Creek Boulevard and give input about the project.

A public hearing is scheduled for Tuesday at the New Tampa Regional Library from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

An informal open house will begin at 5:30 p.m. to give residents time to look over widening plans and environmental impacts of the project.

The formal public hearing will begin at 6:30 p.m. when city of Tampa officials will go over the plans. The presentation will be followed by time for public comment.

Meanwhile, conceptual design plans and environmental documents will be available for public review through Nov. 6 at the library and at the city's Transportation Division, 306 E Jackson St., fourth floor, in downtown Tampa.

The widening, which is not yet fully funded, is estimated to cost about $11.5 million, according to project manager Nina Mabilleau.

The project development and environmental study is expected to be finished by next summer. The design phase will follow and is expected to be completed by spring 2012.
