Project Overview

Phase 2 – ACTIVE

This phase of the project includes resurfacing the parking lot at the Sutherland Bayou Boat Ramp and adding a sidewalk connection from the Pinellas Trail to the bait shop and boat ramp. In addition, inlets will be designed to convey the stormwater runoff to the new retention pond facility.

Phase 1 – COMPLETE (May 2022 – December 2022)

This project provided a dedicated, paved driveway to the Sutherland Bayou Boat Ramp and bait shop. The project closed the existing entrance/exit to the facility that is shared with the adjacent mobile home park and created a new driveway from Alternate U.S. 19, approximately 600 feet south of the existing entrance. Drainage and stormwater management improvements were part of the project.

Tentative Project Timeline – Phase 2
