scope of work is outlined which we hope to complete. From Oak St NE to Turtle Creek
through Coffee Pot Park down Coffee Pot Blvd and NorthShore Drive to the Dali on the
waterfront we utilize motorboats, kayaks, bikers and walkers with volunteers deploying
supplies from Keep Pinellas Beautiful that include shovels, rakes, clippers, nippers,
buckets, barley bags, etc. to optimize our time and work.
The City supplies a large dumpster where vast amounts of debris collected from the
Bayou, Tampa Bay and the sidewalk is collected. With the exception of one landscape
contractor partner, it is all volunteer work. This contractor removes from the waterfront

Road Closure Notice: The 40th Avenue NE bridge (between 12th St NE & 13th Way NE) will close traffic on 06/05/2023 at 6:00 am and reopen on 07/03/2023 by 5:00 pm.
The bridge closure will implement the final configuration for the storm drainage system, utilities, and roadway.
While the City intended to conduct this closure at a period that would have mitigated impacts on our residents, the availability of construction equipment during this busy construction market has limited our available time to facilitate this essential construction step. If nighttime construction is conducted, sound mitigating elements will be implemented on construction equipment where feasible; please remember that some elements are critical for the safe operation of equipment, construction activities, and general safety. Please see the image illustrating the bridge's layout following this closure for more information.
This closure will implement construction activities subject to change based on weather conditions.
