City of Gulfport Public Works Construction Update:
February 20, 2018
UPDATE: Pinellas County Government Gulfport Blvd. Construction Project: Contaminated soil has been encountered at 22nd Avenue and 53rd Street South on Gulfport Blvd. Pinellas County Engineering is in the process of hiring a contractor that specializes in hazardous material removal. It is anticipated that this procedure will delay the construction project on Gulfport Blvd. another 4-6 weeks. In addition to the hazardous material, the center eastbound lane base material is in extremely poor condition. Pinellas County is currently working with their paving contractor and will develop a plan to address that issue. Based on these two issues, Pinellas County’s estimated completion has been revised to May 4th, 2018. For any additional information, please call Pinellas County Project Coordinator, Wesley Merritt at (727) 464-8821.
