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.

    If a team hopes to hang around the pennant race, they better have an ace. A stopper. A pitcher they can count on every fifth day to stop the bleeding, keep a winning streak going or flat-out win a game that a team flat-out needs to win.

  3. GOP senators blink on a big chance to repeal 'Obamacare'

    Nation

    WASHINGTON — After seven years of emphatic campaign promises, Senate Republicans demonstrated Wednesday they don't have the stomach to repeal "Obamacare" when it really counts, as the Senate voted 55-45 to reject legislation undoing major portions of Barack Obama's law without replacing it.
