Traffic Detour Updates
Keep an eye out: Traffic detours are rerouting your drive this August. According to Mike Clarke, St. Pete Beach’s Public Works Director, the detours among 55th Avenue will be removed and pushed up to 44th Avenue. “There will be one lane in each direction in the northbound side of the street,” Clarke said due to the pipe running across traffic instead of with traffic.
Tired of driving through puddles of standing water? Do you refrain from driving after a storm because of flooding? The Florida Department of transportation is conducting a stormwater drainage project on St. Pete Beach from 36th Ave between Gulf Boulevard and Maritana Drive. For one month only local traffic will be allowed to pass through the detour area.
