Traffic Calming

The Traffic Calming Section deals with the design and installation of traffic calming devices. These include but are not limited to speed tables, roundabouts and landscaping to achieve traffic calming effects in neighborhoods. This process is accomplished through a "charrette" workshop at which the residents of the neighborhoods are invited to provide input. For further information, please call (727) 562-4750 and ask for the Traffic Operations Engineering division.

Skycrest Traffic Calming Project

At the request of many Skycrest area homeowners, traffic calming has brought a reduction in speeding to the Skycrest area. Construction of traffic calming features was installed throughout the Skycrest Neighborhood, which is bounded on the west by Glenwood Ave., on the north by Drew St., on the east by Starcrest Dr., and on the south by Gulf-to-Bay Blvd.

Construction began Oct. 1, 2008, and all work is now complete. Construction crews are finalizing a punch list and are finding a resolution to ponding conditions at the handicap ramp at the Lake and Cleveland Street intersection.

New intersection improvements consist of four roundabouts, one diagonal diverter, two speed tables, five mini-roundabouts, and several median islands.

The City of Clearwater thanks residents for their patience during the construction process. If you have concerns about this project please call (727) 562-4750 and ask for the Construction Management division.

Existing asphalt, sidewalk, and curbing are being removed (as shown), and will be replaced with traffic calming features, underground utility lines, and new storm drains.
