FDOT Wants to Make Fruitville Road More Pedestrian and Bicycle Friendly

They are asking us to take a short survey to support one of several plans they have developed. Please consider taking the survey to support this effort to make Fruitville Road a safe and pleasant non-motorized trail corridor. Note that a multi-use path along Fruitville would connect with The Legacy Trail to provide a significant east-west extension of our trail network.


Safety By Design Florida, managed by the Center for Urban Transportation Research at the University of South Florida, is an education effort to promote and encourage safe behaviors for pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers in our community. With new infrastructure and road improvements happening in our area, safety for all road users is a top priority. Please help their effort to promote transportation safety in the community by taking a brief online survey. Click Here to take the survey.
