22nd Avenue S. Sidewalk Improvements
Project ID# 000087A
22nd Avenue S., from 51st Street S. to 34th Street S.,
Gulfport and St. Petersburg
Pinellas County Public Works, through the county's Capital Improvement Program, is making sidewalk and intersection improvements on 22nd Avenue S., from 51st Street S. to 34th Street S. connecting Gulfport and St. Petersburg. The design and construction for the project have been divided into two phases.
Phase I of the project consists of the design and construction of ADA-compliant sidewalks from 49th Street S. and 34th Street S. to complete the sidewalk network on both sides of the roadway. The new sidewalk will be five feet wide on the south side and eight feet wide on the north side of 22nd Avenue S. Easements will be necessary for the construction of some segments of the new sidewalk due to limited right-of-way. Additionally, driveway and drainage modifications will be made as required. The roadway will be milled and resurfaced between 49th Street S. and 34th Street S. Widening of the roadway will be made between 42nd Street S. and west of 40th Street S. to accommodate a left turn lane into Thurgood Marshall Fundamental Middle School and to provide a pedestrian refuge at the Skyway Trail Crossing.
Phase II of the project will consist of pedestrian improvements at the 49th Street S. intersection. Also included, will be upgrades to the existing signalized intersections with mast arms and street lighting at 58th Street S., 52nd Street S., 49th Street S., 43rd Street S., and 37th Street S. along 22nd Avenue S.
