Whether you head to work in an SUV, two-wheeler, or the SunRunner, we have some important updates for you:

  • The City of Tampa announced that starting today, E. Jackson Street, between Tampa Street and Franklin Street, will be cut down to one eastbound lane while workers swap out an aging wastewater pipe. The work is expected to take up to three weeks. In the meantime, the city recommends rerouting to take N. Ashley Drive to either E. Whiting Street or E. Madison Street.
  • Bikers rejoice: The Green Spine will be extended by nearly a mile along Nuccio Parkway and 15th Street, according to the Tampa Bay Buisness Journal.
  • The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority is looking for feedback from residents on “ridership-focused or coverage-focused bus network concepts,” according to a release. Take the survey to weigh in.
