Pinellas County is conducting a Project Development and Environmental (PD&E) Study to evaluate operational and safety improvement alternatives for the intersection of Belcher Road and Gulf to Bay Boulevard (S.R. 60) in Clearwater.
The purpose of the study is to identify alternatives to address the existing operational and safety issues at the intersection. Issues include significant traffic flow challenges and a high number of crashes. In 2019 and 2020, 158 crashes were reported that resulted in 19 injuries. Rear-end collisions were the most frequent accident type, followed by angle and left-turn collisions. Anticipated increases in traffic volumes will continue to impact operations at the intersection.
