Orient Road connects Sabal Park, Net Park Tampa Bay, the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Tampa Bay Tech, King High School, and many other employers and destinations. The area around it was identified as a key economic space earlier in the Transportation for Economic Development study process.
This fiscal year, Hillsborough County is conducting a Project Development and Engineering (PD&E) study to explore feasibility and cost. It will also determine if the widening of Orient Road from south of Broadway Ave to north of Hillsborough Ave furthers options to include adding two through lanes; bicycle lanes, sidewalks, curb and gutter, and medians.
