FDOT Goes Back to the Drawing Board on Howard Frankland Bridge Project

Tampa Bay Business Journal reports, “A new Howard Frankland Bridge is going back to the drawing board. After deciding to pull the plug on plans to include toll lanes across the bridge connecting Pinellas and Hillsborough counties, the Florida Department of Transportation cancelled two public meetings to present the plan.” The newspaper adds that FDOT also cancelled a presentation it was scheduled to make to the Pinellas County Metropolitan Planning Organization, the entity that controls most of the funding for the bridge replacement project, which is part of FDOT’s TBX program.
