To improve the water circulation and quality in Old Tampa Bay and restore tidal flows to the northeast portion of the Bay, the Florida Department of Transportation is building a new bridge on SR 60 (Courtney Campbell Causeway), west of Ben T. Davis Beach. No bridge previously existed in this section of the causeway. The design portion of this design-build project began in October 2017 and construction began in January 2018.

SR 60 and the pedestrian/bicycle trail will remain open for use during construction, however, users should remain alert to shifts in the roadway and trail alignments.

Both directions of traffic and the pedestrian trail were shifted to the northern portion of the new bridge in September 2018. Motorists and trail users will remain in this configuration while the southern portion of the bridge is constructed.

North and south dam removal was completed on November 15, 2018 to allow full tidal flow through the new channel. Meanwhile, construction continues on the southern portion of the bridge.
