Traffic Snags Ahead for Starkey Road/Park Street
Daytime work began today on the intersection at Park Boulevard. Work is expected to take about two weeks.
SEMINOLE – Drivers can expect to see delays and traffic hangups on Starkey Road/Park Street around the intersection with Park Boulevard for the next couple of weeks.
Daytime road work began this morning (Sept. 10). Paving crews will be closing one lane in either direction between 82nd Avenue N and 84th Lane N, leaving the remaining lane open in that direction. Both lanes will stay open in the opposite direction.
Starkey Road changes names to Park Street when it crosses Park Boulevard. Crews had attempted to complete the 0.8-mile project at night, but weather delays pushed construction behind schedule.
The work will take place between about 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. and is expected to take about two weeks. No nighttime lane closures are expected.
The work is part of a larger project for the widening of Starkey. It includes improvements to turn lanes, sidewalks, accessibility ramps, pavement markings, drainage and traffic signals.
The $13-million project is funded by the 1-cent Penny for Pinellas sales tax along with a grant from the Florida Department of Transportation and other county enterprise funds.
Another segment of the Starkey Road/Park Street North corridor is planned for future improvements between 54th Avenue N and Tyrone Boulevard, but dates for that work have not yet been scheduled.
