40th Avenue Bridge Survey closes June 18
St. Petersburg, Fla. (June 14, 2018) – It is clear that the 40th Avenue Bridge project has a lot of interest.
A standing-room only crowd heard about important details about the size and scope of the project Monday night, as designers and city staff addressed questions from residents of the Shore Acres, Patrician Point and Northeast Park neighborhoods.
Numerous issues like right-of way, roadway grades, pedestrian access and construction closures were clearly at the top of mind for many residents – as was the potential for raising the roadway above the waters of Placido Bayou for the benefit of boaters. The fact finding and data collection processes are well under way, and this sort of information provides a base-line of wants and needs that designers will incorporate into their plans for the replacement span.
In light of that, we’d like to remind anyone and everyone who has an interest in this bridge replacement complete a brief survey on the www.40thAvenueBridge.com website. The results of this survey will be tracked, collated, and used as a tool to help design a bridge which will meet needs and desires of the most amount of people.
This multi-year process will be a cooperative and collaborative one. We thank all who have participated thus far and look forward to continued teamwork moving forward.
