MidPoint for Thursday, July 30 – The Tampa Bay Express – a good or bad thing?


The Florida Department of Transportation has some big ideas for the I-275/I-4 intersection. A multi-billion dollar proposal from FDOT called the Tampa Bay Express would add toll lanes to I-275, from the Pinellas County side of Tampa Bay to Bearss Avenue in North Tampa on I-275.

But there is fierce opposition from neighborhood groups in Seminole Heights and Tampa Heights.

On the program we had two members of that activist group, called Sunshine Citizens: Michelle Cookson and Amanda Brown.

Beth Alden from the Hillsborough County Metropolitan Organization and Debbie Hunt from the Florida Dept. of Transportation also participated in the conversation.
