Pedestrians/Cyclists look forward to a new link between counties with the Courtney Campbell Causeway Trail01/25/13 Lisa Marzilli
Last Call Friday | Listen to this entire show:
On today's Last Call we heard details about a project now under construction that is sure to please both bicyclists and hikers – especially those who used to use the Friendship Trail Bridge. It’s called the Courtney Campbell Causeway Trail. The eight-mile path will eventually link Pinellas and Hillsborough Counties connecting Tampa to Clearwater. On the Pinellas side it will run along the south side of the parkway from Bayshore Boulevard in east Clearwater to Ben T. Davis Beach at the Tampa end of the Causeway.
Joining us to talk about the project were Kris Carson, with the Florida Department of Transportation, District Seven, and Clearwater City Councilman Bill Jonson, who is also chairman of the Courtney Campbell Causeway Scenic Highway Advisory Committee.
