New stoplights added to Bayshore Boulevard as part of Vision Zero


What to do with Bayshore Boulevard. Many have spoken out hoping for cross walks, visible walk signals, and traffic lights. The City of Tampa officials have listened and are implementing changes to make the stunning stretch of road safe.

Officials announced the installation of new traffic lights during the weekend of Aug 1. Two new traffic signals have been activated on Bayshore Blvd at the intersections of Euclid Ave & Rome Ave. These new traffic lights are flashing to alert motorists until they are fully activated on Sunday, August 2.

The above intersections have been identified through Tampa’s Vision Zero program as candidate locations for safety-related traffic signals. The temporary traffic signals allow the City to deploy rapid response safety projects.

That’s not the only Vision Zero project in the works.

A new Crosswalks to Classrooms mural installation is being painted near Forest Hills Elementary School! This initiative by Mayor Jane Castor is part of the city’s overall commitment to Vision Zero.

The crosswalk mural features a litany of stunning book spines.
