Repair project to close portion of Pinellas Trail at Boca Ciega Bay crossing. Signs will be posted with map showing closure and adjacent roadways in vicinity.

Beginning Monday, Sept. 10, the bridge portion of the Fred Marquis Pinellas Trail that crosses Boca Ciega Bay along the north side of Bay Pines Boulevard in St. Petersburg will be closed. The trail closure is due to a scheduled reclaimed water main repair project.

The reclaimed water main runs alongside the trail bridge across Boca Ciega Bay. The repair work is located mid-way along the bridge and will require the use of a crane, effectively closing the entire bridge while the repair work is underway.

Trail users will be provided a map at the trail closure locations to aid them in navigating around the closure; however, there are no established detours around the closure. The repair work and closure is scheduled to take two weeks. The county expects to reopen the trail on Friday, Sept. 21.
