US 41/SR45/South 50th Street at CSX Grade Separation
The purpose of this project is to reduce traffic delays associated with the CSX railroad crossing, adequately support the safe movement of truck traffic and freight and enhance connectivity among bicyclists and pedestrians. The US 41 and Causeway Boulevard intersection experiences traffic delays during the AM and PM peak periods with heavy truck traffic (10%-15% of the daily volume) traversing through the intersection. The presence of CSX railroad crossings to the south and east of the intersection also further contributes to these traffic delays. The CSX railroad crossing located to the south of the intersection causes traffic delays particularly during the AM peak period. This project will address traffic delays associated with the CSX railroad crossing to the south of the US 41 and Causeway Boulevard intersection and will facilitate the safe movement of truck traffic through the project corridor. In addition, this project will also address multimodal connectivity within the area.I-4 Trucking Parking Facility
The I-4 Truck Parking Facility will construct a new bi-directional truck parking lot off the I-4 at County Line Road interchange on the border of Hillsborough and Polk Counties in west central Florida. Currently the entire I-4 corridor has 90 public truck parking spots from Tampa to Daytona. This new facility will more than double that amount by adding 120 truck parking spots. This project has multiple components that aim to provide high quality of service for truck drivers utilizing this facility. Sidewalk connections are included with this project to provide access to nearby amenities such as restaurants and hotels. Ramp improvements to provide better freight mobility for trucks accessing this facility and the 15 million square feet of logistics related development along County Line Road are also included, as are minor operational improvements to County Line Road. Once completed the new facility will include connections to the statewide Truck Parking Availability System to provide truck drivers with real time parking availability information. FDOT recently completed advance acquisition of the 40 acres parcel for this project. No additional Right of Way is needed.
