The county proposes to widen Forest Lakes Boulevard to a four-lane, divided highway from west of Pine Avenue to west of Race Track Road.
OLDSMAR – Pinellas County will host a neighborhood project information meeting to preview planned roadway improvements to Forest Lakes Boulevard.
Th meeting is scheduled from 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. Thursday (June 28) at the Oldsmar City Council Chambers, 101 State St. W, Oldsmar. It is open to the public.
The project features the widening of the busy collector roadway to a four-lane suburban divided highway from west of Pine Avenue to west of Race Track Road in Oldsmar. Also included are drainage improvements, a 5-foot-wide paved shoulder that will be designated as a bike lane, sidewalks on both sides of the road and traffic signal upgrades.
