40th Street/McKinley Drive from Hillsborough Ave to Fowler Avenue
Owner: City of Tampa, FloridaLocation: Hillsborough County, Florida
This project consisted of roadway improvements to 40th Street in Hillsborough County. 1.38 miles of existing two-lane roadway was transformed into a four-lane divided roadway with a 4-foot bike lane and 5-foot concrete sidewalk on each side. The project geometry also facilitated transit vehicles with bus bays to prevent traffic flow obstruction. Stormwater design involved joint-use ponds with Busch Gardens and two separate underground vaults. Structural features included design of the vaults and dual precast tunnels underneath 40th Street connecting Busch Gardens’ parking lot to the main entrance. KCA also prepared TCPs for three other sections of the corridor improvements. Three roundabouts were included in the southern segment.
