Hillsborough County Designing Project to Upgrade Progress Boulevard Corridor
Hillsborough County, Fla. (Sept. 24, 2021) - Hillsborough County is conducting a Project Development & Environment Study (PD&E) evaluating improvements that can be made to the Progress Boulevard corridor between Magnolia Park Boulevard and Valleydale Drive.
The study will evaluate improvements to about a half-mile of existing Progress Boulevard, and the project includes improvements within the limited-access right-of-way for Interstate 75.
The purpose of the project is to improve safety and mobility and reduce travel delays along Progress Boulevard. The improvements being evaluated in the study include widening the existing two-lane segment of Progress Boulevard to a four-lane divided roadway connecting to the adjacent four-lane segments of Progress Boulevard. The improvements also include 10-foot shared-use paths on both sides of the proposed roadway.
The purpose of this virtual public engagement is to receive input from the public about the County's recommended improvements.
This PD&E study evaluates the proposed improvements along with a no-build alternative. The evaluation is based on environmental effects, right-of-way needs, project costs, and engineering factors.
