|Mansfield Blvd. at the county line|
From the Trib:
David Goldstein, Pasco's chief assistant county attorney, said Pasco commissioners are willing to open the road, but they have demands.
"We need to be sure there are adequate safeguards," he said. "The issue is once it's open, if we need traffic calming on Mansfield, who's going to pay for that? Because we don't think we should have to."
Those improvements could include traffic circles or signals at two key intersections, at a cost of up to $500,000. He said either the city of Tampa or K-Bar developers should pay for the improvements because the bulk of the traffic would be Hillsborough residents driving north to get to Wiregrass — with its shopping mall, hospital and community college — or to the S.R. 56 interchange.
"If they don't want to meet our demands, we'll leave it barricaded," Goldstein said.
An additional New Tampa connection to Pasco's Meadow Pointe Blvd.which also currently dead ends at the county line, was mentioned and it is possible that a K-Bar connection could happen within three years.
