Sunset Beach Phase 6 Stormwater Project: April-October 2018
The final phase of the Sunset Beach Stormwater Best Management Practices Project will be constructed from April to October 2018. This project will connect stormwater infrastructure to West Gulf Blvd. These improvements are designed primarily to improve discharge water quality while improving stormwater drainage during normal tidal events.
Construction will be located on West Gulf Blvd south of the Bayshore Drive intersection. This project also includes the redevelopment the Tern and Ring Billed Gull Parking Lots. Pervious concrete will be used and native vegetation will be added. Throughout the project, the Ring Billed Gull Lot will be closed and used as a staging area by the contractor.
Please use the recycling centers located at Treasure Bay and City Hall.
June 22nd Update:
The Sunset Beach stormwater contractor will be milling and paving West Gulf Blvd. from the split at Bayshore Dr. south to 77th Ave. on Tuesday and Wednesday, June 26th and 27th. During this time, there will be a detour to Bayshore Dr. as both West Gulf Blvd lanes will be closed. Local access will be provided. At the end of the day on Wednesday, the northbound lane of West Gulf Blvd. will be reopened, but the southbound lane will remain closed over the next few months during project completion.

Central Beach Trail Reconstruction Project: April-August 2018
Beginning April 16th, the Treasure Island Beach Trail will be reconstructed. Currently, the trail is cracked and reconstruction is needed to improve safety and aesthetics. In general, work will begin on the north end of the trail and continue south until construction is complete this August. Beach access will remain available, though less convenient. Please contact Public Works with any questions or concerns.
June 5th Update: The contractor expects to have the north end of the trail reconstructed within the next two weeks, with the exception of the access nodes. The north end is defined as the area north of the St. Pete Municipal Lot (112th Ave.). Construction has also begun on the south end. The access nodes will also be reconstructed once the sidewalk areas are finished. The anticipated project completion is early August 2018.
Sunshine & Sunset Beach Renourishment Project: April-June 2018
Beach renourishment has been completed in Treasure Island. Final tilling of the sand will be completed June 20th to June 22nd.

**Remember: renourishment is vital to our community, both economically and environmentally. Maintaining a healthy coastline helps property values, tourism, wildlife habitat and storm protection.
107th Avenue Roadway Improvement/Clock Tower Area: June 11th-August 2018
