Gladys Street Roadway Updates

The City of Largo's Engineering Division regularly monitors roadway conditions to ensure the safety and sustainability of travel along local roads. In 2019, a City-wide pavement assessment was completed that indicated poor to serious conditions of roadways along Gladys Street in Southwest Largo. The observed roadway conditions indicate a failing or weakened roadway base, which are issues that cannot be corrected by a regular resurfacing of the road. The project site includes Gladys Street from the intersection at Dryer Avenue to the intersection at Wilcox Road.

The City's project team launched a community survey in late Summer/early Fall of 2022 to residents of the neighborhoods surrounding Gladys Street to determine local priorities specifically regarding the proposed traffic calming methods. The survey was completed by 187 residents and roadway users in the neighborhoods surrounding Gladys Street. 

As of June 2023, the City's project team is currently finalizing the Glady Street roadway improvement plan and continuing coordination with the selected Contractor.   The proposed work will include:  
  • Pavement improvements 
  • Minimal curb, ramp and sidewalk repairs to address accessibility 
  • Sidewalk extensions in select areas 
  • Traffic calming
Incorporating both community member and City Commission feedback, proposed traffic calming measures will include: 
  • Raised Crosswalk near Southwest Recreation Complex 
  • Speed Table south of 134th Ave 
  • Raised Intersection at 21st Ave SW 
  • Raised Crosswalk near Hillsdale Ave
In addition, Pinellas County is currently finalizing their design plans for potable water relocations along and across Gladys Street.  The City wants to ensure that all infrastructure repairs under the roadway are completed by the County before we begin our proposed improvements.  This will ensure that the project is successful.  The project team is currently coordinating with the County to detail a construction time frame.  Additional information and more specific timeframe will be provided to residents in late Summer 2023. 

The City of Largo appreciates everyone’s patience as we work to implement these improvements.  For questions, please contact Largo Engineering Services Team Member, Litianyu Zhu, at (727)587-6713 x4420 or [email protected]
