The West Bay Drive Trail Head project will improve connection points from areas adjacent to the Pinellas Trail, from Washington Avenue SW to 4th Avenue NW. The improvements will be made to beautify the trailhead with amenities, signage, landscaping and more. During the December 15th meeting, the City would like to share the final design of the trail head and obtain feedback on the proposed type of recreational amenities for this improved public space.

District Improvements will be made to infrastructure along community streets from Mehlenbacher Road to West Bay Drive between the Pinellas Trail and Clearwater Largo Road. The City has taken the public feedback regarding stormwater drainage, paving, community streets connectivity, and traffic calming and has developed a final design. The next step will be to introduce the final design at the meeting and accept comments on a traffic calming method proposed for the area.

This slide shows the proposed temporary speed table locations along Howard Drive and 11th Street. The purpose of the traffic calming is to reduce speed and provide possible volume reduction for the neighborhood cut-through traffic. The temporary speed tables will allow time to evaluate the effectiveness of the traffic calming measure before any permanent construction. Share your feedback
