HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. — Hillsborough County is hosting a public information meeting on Monday, Sept. 30, to gather input regarding the proposed improvements for the section of Natures Way Boulevard between Elba Place and Bell Grande Drive in Bloomingdale East to improve safety and accessibility for vehicles, pedestrians, and bicyclists.

The meeting will be held at the Bloomingdale High School cafeteria and will begin at 6:30 p.m.

The County recommends converting the existing four-lane roadway to a two-lane roadway with a median and center left-turn lane, along with a bicycle lane in each direction.

Attendees can review, ask questions, and comment on the proposed design for the $1.95 million Capital Improvement Project.
