The 56th Street/50th Street Corridor Planning Study from the Selmon Expressway to Fletcher Avenue will evaluate potential multimodal mobility solutions along 56th Street/50th Street from the Selmon Expressway to Fletcher Avenue in Hillsborough County to create a multimodal corridor that allows for safe travel of all users.

The Plan will be coordinated with Hillsborough County, the City of Tampa, the City of Temple Terrace, the Hillsborough Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), and the Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority’s (HART) to develop potential solutions that improve multimodal safety, operations, and connectivity. The intent is to develop a comprehensive vision to implement continuous multimodal facilities that connect the communities and destination along the corridor. The 56th St corridor from Sligh Avenue to Busch Boulevard/Bullard Parkway was identified by the Hillsborough MPO as a Vision Zero corridor, meaning it was identified as a corridor with a high number of severe crashes leading to fatalities and incapacitating injuries. The study will determine how best to meet the needs of current and future users, and establish a long-term plan to guide evolution of the corridor that appropriately correlates the balance between land use and transportation planning.

The result of the 56th Street/50th Street Corridor Planning Study will include the development of a Corridor Development Plan, which will identify a range of multimodal solutions to address the mobility needs within a context that reflects the long-term vision for the study corridor. The Corridor Development Plan will include short-, mid- and long-term implementation strategies that guide future development within the corridor, as well as specific improvements that can potentially be advanced in the near term though local agency participation and/or by FDOT. The Corridor Development Plan shall also provide a discussion on the identification of barriers to implementation for the preferred concept plan. The Study is scheduled to be completed in October 2022.

Study Purpose

The project is being undertaken to objectively evaluate possible changes to improve multimodal safety, operations, and connectivity. The intent is to develop a comprehensive vision to implement continuous multimodal facilities that connect the communities and destination along the corridor. The 56th St corridor from Sligh Ave to Busch Blvd/Bullard Pkwy was identified by the Hillsborough MPO as a Vision Zero corridor, meaning it was identified as a corridor with a high number of severe crashes leading to fatalities and incapacitating injuries. The 2012-2016 crash analysis identified that the corridor experienced 15 severe crashes per mile. A primary focus of this corridor study is to identify safety solutions and countermeasures to improve the safety for all users of this corridor.
