TAMPA, Fla. — Florida's Department of Transportation wants to hear from you. They're asking for community input on the "aesthetic" for the Howard Frankland Bridge replacement project.
People can vote for their favorite "sail" design that will be placed along the overlooks of the new bridge, which is currently being constructed.
There are two options: the "Marconi Sail" and the "Schooner Sail," according to a news release. Both designs are inspired by Tampa Bay's surrounding waters, FDOT says.
Voting begins online Monday, May 17, and runs through May 31.
The Howard Frankland Bridge replacement project is expected to be completed by 2025, FDOT says. The project will add four general-purpose lanes and two tolled express lanes in both directions. A 12-foot shared-use path will also be added to both sides of the bridge.
