Construction of Five Pocket Parks Along Selmon Greenway begins August 10, 2017
August 4, 2017 In July, the Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority opened the Deputy Kotfila Memorial Dog Park located on Raymond Street, along the Selmon Greenway as its first park. Today, THEA is excited to announce that construction of five pocket parks will begin on August 10, 2017. The Selmon Greenway is approximately 1.7 miles in length providing a connector for pedestrians and bike traffic to Downtown locations and activities. Construction will continue through to December 2017.
There are five parks under construction, beginning at the west end in Downtown Tampas Central Business District and ending near the School Board Building. (From Tampa Street to Kennedy Boulevard, underneath the Expressway.)
All the work will be accomplished during daytime hours. Pedestrians should be aware of possible sidewalk detours and closures throughout the construction area.
