Harbour Island Complete Streets Project
Posted on Oct 4th, 2018
Knights Run Ave from S Harbour Island Blvd to Beneficial Drive; Beneficial Drive from Knights Run Ave to Channelside Dr. are four-lane divided local collector roads with posted speeds of 30 MPH and 40 MPH, respectively and average daily traffic volume of approximately between 15, 380 to 16,560 vehicles per day. The area serves both commercial and residential uses. This project will improve safety and traffic flow for motorists, bicycles and pedestrians. The proposed improvements include:
• Rehabilitating of existing roadway.
• Implementing of traffic calming measures for safety enhancements by installing two raised pedestrian crosswalks, AND narrowing the travel lanes to ten (10) feet.
• Installing bicycle lanes.
• Rehabilitating of existing roadway from Knights Run Ave to the Beneficial Bridge.
• Installing bicycle lanes and adding a 2-ft buffer to the proposed bicycle lane on the Beneficial Bridge.
• Narrowing the travel lanes to ten (10 feet) and reducing the posted speed limit from 40 MPH to 30 MPH.
Please note: This Project is unrelated to the Wastewater Pipeline Project.

Our History

Harbour Island is so much more than a community across the Garrison Channel, neighboring Downtown Tampa. The history surrounding this area is plentiful.
Originally it was named Seddon Island, after a Chief Engineer for the Seaboard Air Line Railway, W.L Seddon. During the majority of the early years, the island was used as a railroad yard and phosphate-loading terminal.

Fast-forward a few decades, to 1979. The Beneficial Land Corporation purchased Harbour Island. This time there were new plans in mind, commercial and real estate development. They broke ground with the first phase of development in 1985, a critical step in creating the Harbour Island of today.

Today, Harbour Island is filled with life. Homes range from single family to large estates, and apartments to high-rises. We have our own island Yacht Club, hotel, coffee shop, restaurants, nightclubs and retail spaces.
