Project Overview

Pinellas County is performing a Corridor Analysis Study for East Lake Road, from south of Curlew Road to north of Trinity Boulevard. The study will examine the existing conditions of the corridor, evaluate needs and deficiencies of the roadway, and develop alternatives for improvements to capacity, traffic flow and safety. The results will be used to develop concepts for potential improvements to East Lake Road and provide information needed to plan, schedule and budget for future improvements.

Background

In the study area, East Lake Road is a six-lane divided roadway from Curlew Road to Tampa Road and becomes a four-lane divided roadway from Tampa Road to Trinity Boulevard. The original design of East Lake Road, north of Tampa Road, included a wide median to accommodate future capacity improvements. The study area is approximately 9.3 miles in length, with nine signalized intersections and one interchange.
