Looking For Temporary Fencing For Upper Deck Cycling

This week, Karen Kress and I met with the executive director and communications director of the Tampa-Hillsborough Expressway Authority regarding Sunday morning bicycling on the top deck of the Selmon Expressway.

The Highway Authority estimated it would cost $133,270 to allow bicycling -- most of it was $111,600 for temporary 4-foot, six-inch fencing.

The cost, in effect, prompted the expressway board to say no to bicycling.

But I was given the opportunity to come up with our own fence-barrier estimates. If you know any barricade or fence company that loves bicycling and would love to see cycling on the upper deck of the Expressway, please let me know.
