Segment of recreational trail gets underway with Courtney Campbell project

Work on a 12-foot-wide recreational trail that someday will stretch between Hillsborough and Pinellas counties starts Sunday as part of a Courtney Campbell Parkway project.

This phase of the project is estimated at $8.4 million.

It will repave State Road 60, and an access road on the north side of the highway, between Rocky Point Drive in Tampa and the Pinellas County line.

And, on the Hillsborough side of the causeway's hump, work starts on a trail on the south side of the highway. This segment extends from Bay Harbor Drive to the west end of Ben T. Davis Beach.

Additional work on the project includes a sidewalk, guardrails and some new traffic lights.

The Florida Department of Transportation warns drivers that some uneven lanes and, later, nighttime lane closures will accompany the project.

This phase is expected to be complete by August 2013.

  1. Hurricane evacuations halted for lack of ambulances at VA's Young center

    As many as 30 patients who should have been evacuated from the C.W. Bill Young VA Medical Center were left behind during Hurricane Irma because the hospital and the county couldn't agree on where they should go.

  2. South Florida poaches debris pickup trucks once slotted for Tampa, officials say

    Hurricanes

    TAMPA — A week into the job of picking up an estimated 300,000 cubic yards of Hurricane Irma debris from its streets, Tampa City Hall is finding to its dismay that the challenge is more competitive than expected.

    A city of Tampa truck loaded with debris from Hurricane Irma pulls into a temporary storage yard on N Rome Avenue Friday morning. There, workers from Tetra Tech, the city's debris monitoring contractor, photograph and check the load from an elevated platform to create a record that the city can use later to seek reimbursement from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

    TAMPA — It's a blink-and-you-miss-it nuance, but in Sunday's opener against Chicago, on their very first defensive snap, the Bucs lined up in a 3-4 defense.
