PALM HARBOR, Fla. — For years, ABC Action News has been following crashes on U.S. 19 in North Pinellas County and the state's plan to make changes.
Now, we're learning a portion of these changes could start in late 2022.
Construction will start further south in Clearwater between SR 580 and Curlew Road.
One-way frontage roads will be built in both directions along with a new interchange at Curlew Road.
Pedestrians will have an underpass between Evans Road and Republic Drive.
