Worth it or wasted: Pedestrian bridge, trail

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

If you've driven on the Courtney Campbell Causeway recently, you've likely noticed all the new construction. The road is being resurfaced, and a new bridge for bicyclists and pedestrians is being built next to it.

The bridge is part of a new, nine-mile multi-use trail that will be funded by federal and state taxes. It will cost an estimated $20 million, according to the Florida Department of Transportation.

The trail should be complete in 2016. Is it worth the money, your tax dollars?
