The Florida Department of Transportation held a public meeting about the projects on Ulmerton Road from east of 119th Street to west of I-275 in Pinellas County. The meeting was held Tuesday, January 22, 2008 at the Holiday Inn Select, 3535 Ulmerton Road. There were no formal presentations, but Department staff were available to answer questions. Fact sheets and large aerial boards of the projects were available for review.  One of the projects is in front of Feather Sound and is identified as Financial Project 257147-1-52-01. This project is currently in the design stage with construction at a fully funded cost of 4.5 million expected to begin in 2011. There will not be any additional lanes added to the six lanes currently existing between the Ulmerton overpass and I 275. The road will be resurfaced with improvements including construction of left-turn lanes, continuous right turn lanes, bike lanes, sidewalks, drainage, signage, signals and lighting. For further information contact FDOT Project Manager Timothy A Drawhorn, P.E., 11201 N. McKinley Drive, MS7-600, Tampa, FL 33612. Office phone: 813-975-6163.

The illustration above was presented at the January 2008 public meeting. Click on the image to view a larger size. A very large image is also available. If you study the large image closely you can see some of the changes proposed such as two turn lanes going west on Ulmerton as you pass under the overpass to turn on to Roosevelt Blvd. Roosevelt then becomes four lanes going south where it is three now but then narrowing to three before the light at the intersection at 28th St. Compare the plan above to the Google map below for more details. The project is still in the design stage and other changes are possible. One remote possibility is the removal of the Roosevelt overpass over Ulmerton and replacing it with a traffic light or modifications to increase the height and width under the overpass.
