Lower speed limit on Kennedy Blvd., safer pedestrian signal at West Shore Blvd.
Two changes to Kennedy Blvd. will create a safer environment for drivers and pedestrians. The Florida Department of Transportation last week installed new 40mph speed limit signs on Kennedy Blvd. in Westshore. The new 40mph speed limit lowers the speed from 45mph, which is consistent with scheduled changes for Kennedy. Kennedy Blvd. will now have a 40mph speed limit from Memorial Hwy. to the University of Tampa.

The City of Tampa has added a leading pedestrian interval at midday to all four legs of the Kennedy / West Shore Blvd. intersection. This will give pedestrians a three-second head start when they request the walk signal. Midday was determined to be the time when there are the most pedestrians in the intersection and would not significantly impact traffic congestion.
FDOT presents aesthetic treatments for Westshore Interchange
The Westshore Interchange will not start until 2024, but the Florida Department of Transportation is already thinking of aesthetic treatments for the Westshore Interchange, Howard Frankland Bridge approach, and overpasses in Westshore. FDOT provided options to the Westshore Alliance Master Plan Committee and Hillsborough MPO subcommittees in August. The treatments incorporate public art, painted walls, and specialty lighting. FDOT is also planning a clear span at the new Reo Street overpass, which will remove previously planned support piers. If you are interested in joining the Master Plan Committee, email Director of Transportation and Planning Michael Maurino here.
