WMNF Drive-Time News Monday | Listen to this entire show:
The Hillsborough County Metropolitan Planning Organization is conducting a corridor study for part Hillsborough Avenue in response to staggering vehicular and pedestrian accident statistics. In March, the Hillsborough County Commission voted to workshop ideas on how to improve transportation, including road safety.
Transportation planner Gena Torres talks about what might lie ahead for East Hillsborough Avenue.
There will be a public meeting on May 14 at 4 p.m. where residents will be able to weigh in some possible solutions.
A similar design workshop -- this time for the Nebraska Avenue corridor -- will be held on April 30.
