Known as the street with the longest continuous sidewalk in the world, with views of the beautiful bay, Bayshore Boulevard may have some changes coming. The city of Tampa wants traffic to slow down to make the boulevard more pedestrian friendly. These changes include narrowing streets, widening bike lanes and lowering the speed limit.

The hope is that these changes will improve safety on the crowded street. Proponents of the changes and updates sat that these safer pedestrian routes and improved recreational areas along Bayshore are important selling points in economic development.
