Whitney Road Complete Streets Project

Project Location

Whitney Road from US 19 to Bolesta Road

Project Status

Study: In progress

Project Overview

Whitney Road is a major east-west roadway that acts as a critical connector for several businesses and residents in the area – such as Longbrook, Whitney Lakes and Greenbrook Estates. The road is frequently used by cars, cyclists, transit users and pedestrians.

The intent of the Whitney Road Complete Streets project is to prepare a concept plan that identifies roadway, infrastructure, and safety improvements such as crosswalks, sidewalks, and bicycle improvements along the corridor, that will better support the needs of all users.

The project is being developed by Pinellas County Housing and Community Development, in coordination with Pinellas County Public Works, Forward Pinellas and the City of Largo. The Project is partly funded through a Complete Streets grant from Forward Pinellas.

Through input from public and stakeholders, ideas will be collected about how Whitney Road can be improved to create a safe, convenient and pleasant traveling experience for people who drive, walk or bike on this road. Concepts for roadway and infrastructure improvements will be developed, which will enable us to advance towards design and implementation.
