Millions in infrastructure projects proposed for Tampa would boost Ybor Rays stadium plan

Tampa area lawmakers have filed three appropriations project requests for the 2022 Legislative Session to provide nearly $30 million combined for infrastructure projects in the Ybor City, Channel District and East Tampa areas.

The projects would provide valuable transportation, pedestrian safety and corridor enhancements in areas connecting to Ybor City, where a new baseball stadium is proposed for the Tampa Bay Rays.

While none of the requests specifically mentions a potential baseball stadium, and each request stands on its own without a stadium, the Rays’ leadership are aware of the requests, which would support needed transportation improvements to the proposed sites.

“We are requesting state funds for badly needed connections between East Tampa, Channelside, Ybor City and downtown with a network of safe transportation options including new crosswalks, improved intersections and miles of sidewalks and bike lanes. With or without a new stadium, leveraging state and federal resources to invest in our infrastructure is crucial to help all our neighborhoods thrive and connect to thousands of new jobs and housing options,” said Tampa Mayor Jane Castor spokesman Adam Smith.

Yeah, I'm sure they are.
