    Join us for an online or in person Community Conversation!

    This is your chance to have a say in the future of Downtown St. Petersburg.

    Forward Pinellas, the City of St. Petersburg and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) have identified potential projects that will improve access, connectivity and safety for everyone in Downtown St. Petersburg. Now, we want your thoughts on these potential solutions to ensure this plan represents our community’s vision and values. Throughout October, we’re holding one in person and four online Community Conversations.

At the online and in person Community Conversations, we’ll talk about the potential projects as well as the benefits and impacts these projects would have on the community, both in terms of local access and regional mobility. You’ll have the opportunity to talk with the Forward Pinellas Executive Director, City of St. Petersburg Transportation and Parking Management Director, and other project managers who can answer questions and hear your thoughts.


Major projects we’ll discuss include: 

  • I-175 or I-375 modification, redesign or removal to enhance connectivity throughout downtown and to surrounding neighborhoods
  • 3rd & 4th Streets conversion to two-way roads for a more walkable community, reduce trip lengths and improve access
  • 5th & 4th Aves. conversion to two-way roads for more connectivity and to promote safety
  • Dr. MLK Jr Street and 8th Street conversion to two-way roads to promote safety and improve access to businesses
