State Road 676 (22nd Street Causeway Boulevard) and State Road 45 (US 41) are vital arterial highways which serve the City of Tampa located in Hillsborough County. This negative declaration analyzes various engineering and environmental factors considered in defining the specific location and design alternates. The improvement limits for State Road 676 are from the south approach of the McKay Bay Bridge east approximately 1.1 miles to State Road 45 (US 41). The improvement limits for State Road 45 (US 41) are from the 36th Avenue South intersection north approximately .9 miles to the 23rd Avenue South intersection. State Road 676 is on the State of Florida Primary and the Federal Secondary Highway Systems. State Road 45 (US 41) is on the State and Federal Primary Highway Systems. The 1973 Federal Highway Act called for realignment of the Federal Aid System by July 1, 1976, and these designations could change.

Study Purpose and Need

The purpose of this negative declaration is to document and analyze various engineering and environmental factors considered in defining the specific location and design alignment for improvements to State Road 676 (22nd Street Causeway Boulevard) and State Road 45 (US 41), located in Hillsborough County.

The improvement limits for State Road 676 begin near the south approach of the McKay Bay Bridge, and traverse eastwardly approximately 1.1 miles through the State Road 45 (US 41) intersection and end near the Seaboard Coastline Railroad tracks.

The improvement limits for State Road 45 (US 41) begin near the 36th Avenue South intersection and traverse northwardly approximately .9 miles through the State Road 676 (22nd Street Causeway Boulevard) intersection and end near the 23th Avenue South intersection.

Proposed Improvements

The proposed improvements will include the four laning of the existing two laned segment of State Road 676, the construction of an interchange at the intersection of State Road 676 with State Road 45 (US 41) and a grade separation at the Seaboard Coastline Railroad crossing of State Road 45 (US 41). The present four lane section of State Road 45 (US 41) within the study limits will be six laned.
