Road Resurfacing Project on Osprey Ridge in Fishhawk Will Improve Safety
Hillsborough County, Fla. (Nov. 30, 2021) - Hillsborough County will resurface Osprey Ridge Drive from its intersection with Fishhawk Boulevard south and east to the Churchside Drive roundabout. The 2.7-mile resurfacing project also includes a small section of Fishhawk Crossing Boulevard from the Churchside Drive roundabout north to Dorman Road.
The $1.55 million project will improve safety for motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists along Osprey Ridge Drive/Fishhawk Crossing Boulevard. The project is consistent with Vision Zero principles, adding bicycle lanes from Fishhawk Boulevard to Osprey Glen Drive, reducing travel lane widths on that same stretch of roadway, and upgrading school zone signage at Bevis Elementary School.
The two-lane section of Osprey Ridge Drive will get upgraded pavement markings, called "sharrows," to indicate that bicyclists and motor vehicle drivers must share the road.
The resurfacing also includes reconstructing the flexible pavement at the Churchside Drive roundabout and upgrading traffic signs.
The project is in the design phase, and the resurfacing is expected to be complete in mid-2022.
