The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) contractor is providing some cost-savings initiatives that will move the Gulf Boulevard Drainage Project start date out a minimum of three months.

This Gulf Boulevard Drainage Project is designed to help alleviate the flooding along Gulf Boulevard after it rains. Gulf Boulevard is a State Road and is owned and maintained by the FDOT.

Sidewalks in FDOT right-of-way from 191st - 195th Avenues have been added to the project.

Adding a crosswalk at 199th has been included because it lies within the boundaries of the project scope.

FDOT is looking into the possibility of a separate project for the crosswalk at 186th.

This drainage project is somewhat of a band-aid or stop-gap measure. The Town will be making a presentation at the May 8 meeting of Forward Pinellas to request to put the "complete renovation" project of sidewalks, curbing and drainage on their priority list for funding.
