Project Overview

Pinellas County is planning the replacement of the Madonna Boulevard Bridge as part of an ongoing effort to maintain and operate a network of over 140 bridges.

The Madonna Boulevard Bridge was originally constructed in 1957 and repaired in 1973 and 2005. Preliminary engineering reports conducted in 2018 and 2020 show the existing bridge is nearing the end of its useful life and requires complete replacement due to issues with both the substructure and superstructure. The bridge provides the only access to the island community of Pine Key, which is a part of Tierra Verde.

The existing bridge is approximately 120-feet-long with three equal spans of 40 feet. The bridge has an overall roadway width of 49-feet, 6-inches, providing two 12-foot lanes and a 6-foot sidewalk on both sides.

Pinellas County is proposing a 180-foot-long bridge with three equal spans of 60 feet to help improve water flow and reduce scour through the canal. The proposed bridge will have an overall width of 49-feet, 8-inches, providing two 12-foot lanes, shoulders, and a 6-foot sidewalk on both sides.
