FDOT Funds Huge Recreational Path Project in Tampa

In a region whose growth and traffic has left too little safe space for pedestrians, runners and bicyclists, the Florida Department of Transportation is making a bold, off-road investment.

Work starts next month on a trail along the Courtney Campbell Causeway over Old Tampa Bay. It will be 12 feet wide and, at its highest points along the bridges, up to 45 feet above the water.http://www2.tbo.com/news/opinion/2012/aug/19/vwopino1-stunning-new-walkway-to-span-old-tampa-ba-ar-467398/
