Building A Paved Tampa Bypass Canal Trail

SWFBUD prodded the MPO to hire a company that did a study on building a paved 17-mile trail along the Tampa Bypass Canal Trail and I was happy to hear that people checked out the studyat an open house last month. You're allowed to ride or hike ride now along the Tampa Bypass Canal Trail, but the thing is it's not paved so not too many bicyclists go there unless they have a mountain bike. I also wish the water district would create better access to the current grassy trail because here's a gate opening off Morris Bridge Road that doesn't even allow a mountain bike to pass through. Please email and call your county coommissioners and advise them them to build a paved Tampa Bypass Canal Trail.
