To increase pedestrian safety throughout Belleair, new crosswalks were added along Indian Rocks Road in 2020. The construction of these crosswalks was a three-step process:
Damaged sidewalks and curbs along Indian Rocks Road were replaced and upgraded in the summer of 2020
In September, crossing locations were milled and resurfaced. This means the top layer of asphalt was removed and resurfaced with a new layer of asphalt - this was done since the new striping must be applied to a fresh, smooth surface. The asphalt then had to set for several weeks before the next step
Patterned surfaces and reflective striping was added to several crossings in November and December of 2020
While this work was completed by a contractor, questions may be directed to Belleair's Construction Project Supervisor, Keith Bodeker: (727) 408-4860. Residents may also email Mr. Bodeker with questions or concerns.
