Alternate US 19 User Survey

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), District 7 is conducting a corridor planning study along Alternate US 19 (SR 595) from Park Street North to the Pinellas/Pasco County Line in Pinellas County – a distance of approximately 28.9 miles. A map of the study corridor is available on the project website here: http://www.fdotd7studies.com/altus19studies/.  Alternate US 19 is a major north-south corridor in Pinellas County, connecting to numerous regionally significant corridors – including Ulmerton Road (SR 688), East Bay Road (SR 686), SR 60, and US 19. The corridor is a hurricane evacuation route, and provides access to the various barrier islands in the southern part of the County.

The corridor is divided into two (2) study segments. The southern segment begins at Park Street North and ends at Belleair Road. This 11-mile segment traverses through the cities of Largo and Seminole. The northern segment is from Belleair Road to the Pinellas/Pasco County Line. The 17.9 mile northern segment traverses through the cities of Clearwater, Dunedin and Tarpon Springs, as well as unincorporated Palm Harbor.

The Alternate US 19 corridor study will use FDOT’s Complete Streets policy (http://www.fdot.gov/roadway/CSI/default.shtm) to showcase how Complete Streets approaches can shape a corridor. As part of this corridor study, FDOT and Forward Pinellas are working together with local government, agency and community partners to develop a coordinated vision for the corridor.  This vision will serve as the basis for the development of transportation strategies and improvements designed to increase the mobility, safety and accessibility of vulnerable transportation users, reduce congestion at key intersections, and improve the economic viability and quality of life along the corridor.

Public participation is solicited without regard to race, color, national origin, age, sex, religion, disability, or family status.
