St. Petersburg, Fla.  (October 5, 2018) – Over the past several months, engineers have been working on plans to replace an aging bridge over Placido Bayou between the Shore Acres, Northeast Park, Venetian Isles and Patrician Point neighborhoods.

Using results from ongoing surveys and conversations with residents and bridge users, the design staff is preparing a series of plans and design elements which will be brought back to the members of the community and other interested stakeholders in a special informational workshop in November.
