Pinellas County is requesting public input about options for improving 54th Ave. N. in Lealman.

The county is conducting an online survey to gather feedback from residents about the proposed improvements to 54th Ave. between 34th St. N. and 49th St. N.

Input from citizens will help county planners and engineers develop a Complete Streets Plan for 54th Avenue North, which is being prepared with other roadway improvement plans as part of the Linking Lealman Action Plan. The aim is to enhance safety and mobility for all modes of transportation, including bicycles and walking.

The plan also includes "green infrastructure" strategies to leverage existing and proposed recreational amenities.

According to the county, the 54th Avenue North corridor has been divided into two segments. The west segment extends from 49th Street North to the railroad track, and the east segment extends from the railroad track to 34th Street North. Two alternatives are being considered for the west segment and three for the east.
