The Tampa Beltway Proposal: Pros and Cons

Traffic congestion and construction delays have become a way of life for Tampa Bay commuters. Transportation planners are promoting a new project for West-Central Florida: a proposed beltway which would begin in Manatee County, head through Eastern Hillsborough, bypassing Tampa then turn west into Pasco County. The beltway would be among the most ambitious and costly road construction projects ever attempted in the region. Some critics suggest we should devote more resources toward mass transit, light rail and other alternative modes of transportation instead. Can Tampa Bay pave its way out of gridlock?
