Complete Streets Project on West Bay Drive


To continue the momentum of implementing complete street treatments throughout Pinellas County, Forward Pinellas has announced another round of funding for complete street concept plans and construction projects. The West Bay Drive Complete Streets Plan would focus on a 2-mile area of West Bay Drive between Clearwater-Largo Road in Largo and the Belleair Causeway Bridge in Belleair Bluffs. The goal is to connect the Pinellas Trail and Largo’s Medical Arts District to the Belleair Causeway Bridge and beach communities.

Construction for the West Bay Drive Complete Streets project is now estimated to be initiated in Early 2024. Below are details regarding the project including the December 8, 2020 Work Session Presentation. For questions, contact [email protected]
