CLEARWATER - As of Thursday, May 9, traffic on Enterprise Road no longer can cross over US-19. FDOT crews removed the traffic signal at US-19 and Enterprise overnight Wednesday, May 8, and a concrete barrier was placed in the median of 19.
Westbound Enterprise traffic must make a right turn onto NB US-19. Motorists wanting to travel southbound will be directed to drive north to Countryside, make a U-Turn under 19 and reenter southbound 19. Eastbound Enterprise Rd already must turn right onto southbound US-19 (and cannot cross over US-19).
FDOT says the changes are consistent with other interchanges along US-19 in Pinellas County.The change is part of construction on US-19 between Sunset Point Road and Countryside Boulevard that began in July 2012. The $17.2M project is scheduled for completion in 2015.
