Hillsborough Seeks Public Input on Two Important Intersection Improvement Projects
Hillsborough County, Fla. (July 19, 2021) - Hillsborough County is seeking input from the public on proposed intersection improvements at two busy Hillsborough County intersections.
The purpose of this public engagement opportunity is to present the preferred intersection improvements to the public. Members of the public will have the opportunity to review the information and provide feedback during the two-week public comment period from July 19 to Aug. 2.
In Plant City, an intersection improvement project is proposed for East Park Road and Jim Johnson Road. The proposed new intersection would include widened approach lanes, new turn lanes, and a new traffic signal. The $2 million project is expected to begin in late this summer and be complete in early 2022.
In Lutz, proposed improvements at the intersection of U.S. 41 and Sunset Lane would add turn lanes and updated traffic signals. The $1.6 million project is expected to begin in summer of 2022 and be complete in summer of 2023.
Both projects enhance pedestrian and bicycle safety by incorporating Vision Zero principles such as ADA-compliant sidewalks.
Residents and commercial property owners can review the proposed changes and give feedback. Visit HCFLGov.net/HCEngage at any time from July 19 and Aug. 2 to learn more about the project and offer comments.
