If you've ever lived in Atlanta or Los Angeles, you are not allowed to complain about traffic in Gainesville, Fla.

And for the record, I agree that improvements and changes will need to occur in order to put a baseball stadium in the channelside area. They might have to be willing to do things they've never done before, like making Kennedy and Bayshore one-way streets for 1-2 hours leading up to game time. Yes, that would suck for some downtown workers trying to go home, but the majority wouldn't have trouble getting out before 6 p.m. ... But the main improvements would have to be with I-275 and the Expressway. They'll want to make it so that most ticket-holders are encouraged to access downtown that way.

Hotel appears to be part of Vinik’s development plan

TAMPA — Tampa Bay Lightning owner Jeff Vinik’s initial plans for developing his massive Channel District land holdings appear to include a new hotel next to the Forum, public documents show.

Meantime, other documents suggest the team owner is considering major roadwork a few blocks away in the Channel District to allow for more real estate development and better traffic flow.
