ROAD CLOSURE: Eastbound Lane Closures Expected Along Drew Street

Clearwater, Fla. -- The FDOTís contractor, Lane Construction Corporation, will repave Drew Street (State Route 590) between Myrtle Avenue and Mariva Avenue in Clearwater starting today, April 16. Two eastbound lanes will be closed this week for tree removal at Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue and Hillcrest Avenue for sidewalk installation. After this week, there will be single lane closures off and on in each direction due to milling and resurfacing.

New sidewalk and handrailing will be constructed along the north side of the Stevenson Creek Bridge where it currently does not exist. The contractor will also replace the handrail along the sidewalk on the south side of the bridge. Damaged sidewalks within FDOT right-of-way will be repaired throughout the corridor. The project is expected to be complete this Fall.

Residents with questions can call the Florida Department of Transportation's Clearwater Construction office at (727) 725-7950 or send an email to roadwork@dot.state.fl.us.
