FDOT is holding a virtual public meeting in Clearwater for proposed median modifications on US 19 between SR 580 (Main Street) and CR 95/CR 39.

The meeting will be held on July 12, 2021, at 6 p.m. The proposed project will change US 19 between SR 580 (Main Street) and CR 95/CR 39 from a six-lane divided highway to a six-lane controlled access road with one-way frontage roads in both directions parallel to US 19.

All medians on US 19 will be closed between SR 580 (Main Street) and CR 95/CR 39 and replaced with a concrete barrier wall. Access to businesses will be maintained using the frontage roads. To allow for maximum participation, the public meeting will be held in three formats including virtually over the internet, at an in-person drive-thru location and by phone.
