Extended Road Closure Notice: 2nd Ave NE

As part of the St Pete Pier™ development, 2nd Ave. NE between Beach Drive and Bayshore Drive will be closed to thru traffic on 7/22/19 for roadway construction, for an anticipated six-month period. This work includes substantial reconstruction and drainage improvements. Beach Drive and Bayshore Drive will still be accessible for northbound and southbound traffic flow, and the intersections of Beach and Bayshore at 2nd Ave. will be converted to all-way-stop intersections.

The City Marina, St. Petersburg Museum of History and Frescos will all remain open throughout construction.
