Pinellas County is replacing the Oakwood Drive bridge over Stephanie’s Channel as part of an ongoing effort to maintain and operate a network of over 140 bridges located throughout the County. The bridge, located in the Harbor Bluffs subdivision, will be reconstructed with two 10-foot travel lanes and a 7-foot, 6-inch sidewalk that will improve pedestrian safety across the bridge. Utility lines, including water, sewer, gas, and power, will also be relocated during construction.
To maintain access to the island portion of the neighborhood, the bridge will be constructed in two phases. One lane will be kept open during construction using a temporary traffic signal to allow for timed, two-way traffic across the bridge.
