THEA’s Board has approved a $2.5 million for enhancements to the Selmon Greenway. As part of THEA’s ongoing commitment to the region, they are upgrading and enhancing the Selmon Greenway with no tax dollars used for enhancements! Upgrades to the greenway will include pocket parks, bike racks, landscaping and other amenities. Lighting additions will improve safety and visibility; while benches and public art will really enhance the experience for bicyclists and pedestrians alike.
Already, the authority is adding signs to direct people on foot and wheels to the 15-foot wide trail. The Selmon Greenway extends 1.7 miles under the Selmon Expressway, providing a vital east-west connection across downtown. The greenway connects many of downtown Tampa’s popular entertainment, educational, and business venues. It will also provide opportunities for stormwater improvements. All of the multi-use trail will be readily accessible and meet the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
The Selmon Greenway is a breath of fresh air in the heart of the city!
