Thank you for your interest in the San Martin Boulevard over Riviera Bay Bridge Replacement Project Development and Environmental (PD&E) Study. The project team is interested in your ideas and input. Opportunities for community involvement will be provided throughout the study. Check the Community Outreach page for updates, upcoming public meeting dates and general information as the project progresses.
The study will evaluate rehabilitation or replacement of the bridge within the project limits. A separate component of the project will evaluate trail enhancements from Macoma Drive to Gandy Boulevard.
A Public Alternatives Workshop was held in 2016 and provided an opportunity for the community to ask questions and offer comments about bridge rehabilitation or replacement options. Information about the study process, environmental, recreational, and engineering issues that may affect potential options was provided. View presentations.
Project Update for the San Martin Blvd over Riviera Bay Bridge Replacement Project Development and Environmental (PD&E) Study:
- On March 29, 2018, a team from HDR Engineering, Inc. presented a project update to City of St. Petersburg staff and stakeholders from adjacent homeowners and civic associations, which incorporated the latest information and recommendations about sea level rise (SLR) from Tampa Bay Climate Science Advisory Panel (TBCSAP).
- On June 12, 2018, the project team presented an SLR analysis and project update to the Board of County Commissioners (BCC), after which the Board moved to continue the PD&E Study with the stakeholder preferred alternative. The updated presentations can be accessed by clicking on the following links:
- On January 10, 2019, the County Administrator approved the Second Amendment to the Agreement with HDR Engineering, Inc. for professional engineering consulting services for the San Martin Boulevard over Riviera Bay Bridge Replacement Project Development and Environmental (PD&E) Study. The Second Amendment allows time for HDR to perform the detailed analysis of the recommended eastern alignment alternative that was selected by the BCC on June 12, 2018, and to comply with changes made by Florida Highway Administration (FHWA), which delegated lead agency responsibilities to the Florida Department of Transportation, Office of Environmental Management. This study is anticipated to be complete in June 2020.
