PINELLAS COUNTY, Fla. — Getting to and from the Howard Frankland bridge for drivers in Pinellas County is taking more time for some as crews are removing and replacing the 4th Street Bridge.
The popular entrance to Interstate 275 will be under construction for the next two years.
The work you see underway is part of a $9 million improvement project that replaces the 4th Street bridges between I-275 and 119th Avenue in Pinellas County in both directions.
The new bridges will include two twelve-foot travel lanes, a six-foot inside shoulder and a 10-foot outside shoulder.
One of the bridges will also include a 12-foot multi-use path separated by a barrier wall to make it safer for pedestrians.
The detour in place, while work is underway, is Roosevelt Boulevard to the I-275 entrance ramp. Follow the detour signs posted.
The project is expected to be completed in the Spring of 2024.
