Final Segment of the Riverwalk, New Bike Track Connect Tampa 

After decades of working to create a more connected downtown area, one where cyclists and pedestrians could safely explore all that Tampa offers, Mayor Buckhorn and city officials have opened the final segment of the large Riverwalk and Florida's first the first two-way signalized cycle track on a two-way street.. The two-way bike track Poe Garage to Nebraska Avenue, with bicycle signals at each intersection. 

The official ribbon-cutting at the Tampa Riverwalk Doyle Carlton Segment (near Laurel Street Bridge) marks the completion of a project that has remained in the minds of city officials for nearly 30 years. It's not the end to the development downtown, though. Julian B. Lane Riverfront Park will soon undergo a multi-million dollar update, which will add a community center, playgrounds, a new stop for the water taxi and more. These updates should be complete before the winter of 2017.
