The Florida Department of Transportation is asking the Community to participate in the process and cast their vote for their favorite “sail” design that best exemplifies Tampa Bay.
The sails will be located along the four scenic overlooks on the new bridge. Voting will begin May 17th and run through May 31st and includes two options: the “Marconi Sail” and the “Schooner Sail.” Both designs are nautically inspired by the surrounding waters of Tampa Bay. The community can cast their vote at www.TampaBayNext.com.
Once the bridge replacement is complete, drivers will have four general purpose lanes and two tolled express lanes in each direction. Additionally, a 12-foot shared use path that will be separated from the roadway will connect to trails on either side of the bridge. Construction of the Howard Frankland Bridge replacement project is expected to be completed in late 2025.
