The Courtney Campbell Causeway is a testament to modern society and nature co-existing in a productive, equally beneficial manner. The Courtney Campbell Causeway is a vital artery in the body that is Tampa Bay, providing a vital link to the cities of Tampa and Clearwater. It is a porthole to a globally important and unique ecosystem. The Causeway is literally alive through its self-created ecosystem and the numerous species of wildlife that depend on the causeway for food, shelter, and breeding. Not only does the corridor house wildlife, it also is a haven and destination for people to enjoy themselves. The most significant scenic, natural, and recreational resources of the corridor are set aside for use by visitors and the community in the form of nature preserves, beaches, and recreational sites. The scenic highway running at sea level along the Bay is picturesque the entire length. It is full of opportunities for recreation, and life. There is a strong community tie to the corridor and citizens are committed to its preservation. The Courtney Campbell Causeway should be preserved and enhanced not as a highway, but as a scenic corridor that is a vital resource to the prosperity of the region.
