Please Attend Monday's Expressway Board Meeting
I know it's difficult for 9-5 workers to attend 3 pm government meetings. But if you're free at 3 pm Monday, it might be a good idea to stop off at the Tampa-Hillsborough Express Authority board meeting. The Expressway staff will be briefing the board on a SWFBUD proposal to close the upper deck of the expressway for two or three hours on limited early Sunday mornings and opening it up to bicyclists. I floated this idea about a month ago to the board, which voted to instruct staff to check out the feasibility of bicyclists on the closed upper deck for limited times on early Sunday mornings.
Check out the St. Pete Times story on the issue.
If you think this is a good idea, come to the board meeting a few minutes before 3 pm and tell the members what you think. The Authority office is located at 1104 E. Twiggs Street on the edge of downtown Tampa.
