8th Avenue Southwest Closure beginning Early February

Starting February 5, Pinellas County Public Works will temporarily close 8th Avenue SW, from Taylor Lake Park to Pinecrest Drive, for approximately 3-6 months. This closure is necessary for vital storm drainage improvements. The detour route for traffic will be West Bay Drive between 20th St NW and Clearwater-Largo Road.

Pedestrians and cyclists, be prepared that the detour route may sometimes parallel that of motorists. The goal is to maintain connectivity for walkers and cyclists, but there might be instances when the detour is as long as that of the vehicles.
