County commissioners advance Pinellas Trail project

April 8, 2020 - The Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners approved a $1.6 million design-build contract with Cone & Graham for the “north gap” segment of the Pinellas Trail Loop, a 6.8 mile segment from John Chesnut Park to Enterprise Road in Clearwater. It’s one of two remaining gaps in the Pinellas Trail Loop, a 75-mile regional trail network, according to the county. The agreement approved by county commissioners on Tuesday authorizes Cone & Graham, a Tampa construction firm, to begin the design phase, which is expected to be completed in just under a year. After a guaranteed maximum price is developed, county commissioners will consider the construction portion of the project, or phase two. The total estimated cost to complete the north end of the Pinellas Trail Loop is $8 million. The Florida Department of Transportation provided $5.7 million for the project, and the county will fund the difference of $2.3 million from the Penny for Pinellas tax.
