City Road Plans - Street Closure & Detours
Use the tabs to learn more about each road construction project.
- Contractors began replacing four lift stations along Gulf Boulevard.
- The construction along Gulf Boulevard and 58th Avenue area has resulted in unexpected road closure due to the proximity to the road. There will be daily lane closure on the west lane heading south along Gulf Boulevard through the next four weeks.
- Starting April 19th, 2021, Metro Equipment Service Inc will begin the installation of a new sanitary sewer force main in Gulf Boulevard for the City of St. Pete Beach. This phase of the work will begin near 37th Avenue & Gulf Boulevard, progressing north in phases. This portion of the project is anticipated to take three to four months to complete. Motorists can expect lane closures on Gulf Boulevard and periodic congestion on connecting roadways as the remainder of construction progresses towards completion. The inside south and north bound lanes and middle turn lane on Gulf Boulevard will encounter hard road closures while crews are installing the new pipes. Motorists traveling to destinations on the opposite west side of Gulf Boulevard adjacent to these lane closures will need to proceed past their destination and make a U-turn to get around the construction.
