Lakeshore Estates Roadway and Drainage Improvements Project
This website has been created to keep the community informed about this project and to provide an opportunity for community input.
The Lakeshore Estates Roadway and Drainage Improvements Project is located in the Lakeshore Estates Subdivision in Palm Harbor. For the purposes of this project, the segment known as Freshwater Estates is also included as part of Lakeshore Estates.
A Preliminary Engineering Report (PER) to assess and recommend solutions to street and drainage issues was initiated in 2013 and completed in 2015. The PER identified more significant drainage issues on 8 of the 14 streets and roadway issues on all 14 streets. As part of Phase 1 of this project, five streets were selected for drainage and road reconstruction improvements based on ranking, available funding and recorded citizen input. In addition to the drainage and road work, Pinellas County Utilities will be replacing the main sewer line on South Canal Drive, one of the five streets included in Phase 1.
The identified drainage and road improvements from the PER for the nine remaining streets will be addressed in Phase 2, which is currently underway and being expedited in order to have construction begin before completion of construction for Phase 1. In addition to identified drainage and road reconstruction needs, all roads will be milled and repaved.
This project is being administered by the Pinellas County Public Works Department.
