Operation Traffic Signal: Remove the Danger at JAHVH, USF & iQ Apartments Intersection
- Tampa, Florida
- United States of America
Update: The James A. Haley Veterans' Hospital opened in 1972. For decades a traffic signal was needed at the dangerous main entrance / exit of the hospital which is on Bruce B. Downs Blvd. In September 2018 Hillsborough County received $1.4 Million from the Veterans Administration for the traffic signal project. And now the Hillsborough County Government states the projected work will be completed no later than mid-2021. You can help put this project on FAST TRACK!
One of the most dangerous intersections in Tampa is on Bruce B. Downs Blvd at the James A. Haley Veteran’s Hospital and University of South Florida (USF) Campuses and the iQ Luxury Student Apartments intersection. To see video of this dangerous intersection go to YouTube and search < Tampa's Dangerous Intersection >. And don't forget to come back and sign this petition.
Urgently needed now on Bruce B. Downs Blvd are critical traffic signals, pedestrian crosswalks with signals, turning lanes and modern street lights. Kudos to the James A. Haley Veterans' Hospital which completed action to modernize Richard Silver Way that connects with Bruce B. Downs Blvd!
Who does the James A. Haley Veterans' Hospital treat? FOIA 2018 answer: "In FY 17, Tampa/673 treated patients from 66 of Florida's counties, all 50 US states plus D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam, and the US Virgin Islands, as well as seven countries outside of the US and its territories (NICARAGUA, SINGAPORE, AUSTRIA, COSTA RICA, POLAND, QATAR, SAINT CHRISTOPHER/St. KITTS AND NEVIS)."
Approximately 50,608 vehicles enter this intersection on an average week day. That is, about 75,000 persons pass through this intersection on an average week day.
USF students living in those luxury apartments are still crossing this very dangerous intersection multiple times day and night by walking, running and skateboarding. And at this intersection, illegal left turns are still being made from Richard Silver Way.
