The workshop covered the Northwest (Veterans) Expressway, and Tampa Interstate Study Segments 1A, 2A, 2B, 3A, and 3B (also referred to as Tampa Bay Next Sections 4, 5, and 6).

The Alternatives Public Workshop was held to allow interested persons an opportunity to provide comments concerning the location, conceptual design, and social, economic, and environmental effects of the Tampa Interstate Study (TIS) Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) and the Northwest (Veterans) Expressway Design Change Re-evaluation.

Information related to Historic Resources was provided at the Alternatives Public Workshop. This information presented the Section 106 process and schedule for identifying and evaluating historic resources, determining significant historic properties, and evaluating potential impacts to significant historic properties.

FDOT representatives were available at both Alternatives Public Workshop locations to discuss the process, answer questions and receive comments.
