May 11, 2021 (Tampa, Fla.) – On May 20, 2021, at 6:30 pm, the Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority (THEA) will host a Virtual Alternatives Meeting to discuss the Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study. The Whiting Street PD&E Study includes options to connect Whiting Street to Meridian Avenue and the possible reconfiguration of the Selmon Expressway ramps at Florida and Morgan.

This study looks at ideas for the eastbound downtown Tampa exit ramps and the Jefferson Street entrance ramp of the Selmon Expressway, as well as neighboring surface streets in downtown Tampa.

The Virtual Alternatives Meeting will include a narrated portion that will give interested persons an opportunity to hear the background and purpose of the project, the process to complete the Whiting Street PD&E study, and the alternatives being considered.
