Can you please provide some information about the Oak St NE paving project- (off Gandy Blvd) it has been ongoing for 2 1/2 months and the road is nearly impossible - and very progress is made to reconstruct this 1/8 of mile- I invite you to drive your car down this road. Please advise the few hundred of us that HAVE TO use this road-there is no other option to get onto Gandy Blvd. PLEASE!! 10980 Oak St NE, St. Petersburg, FL 33716
I reported this last year this year and since AER now Camden pier district apartments were constructed this post always gets close out saying it's a duplicate I want to know if it is a duplicate what is being done with it because this is going on for two years now.
Standing water is a constant issue at the corner of 17th Ave NE and Beach Drive NE. For the past few days water has been draining from a construction site. Since there is nowhere for it to drain, it has pooled and is stagnant for several blocks. Mold (?) is now growing on the bricks and the deep and ever-growing puddle of water is 1/2 way into the street.
Part of this drainage canal is in the Pinellas Park district and part is in the city of Largo district. In other words behind our house is Pnellas Park but everything north that abuts Ranchero Village and Pine Forest is the city of Largo. I contacted the city of Largo several times and was told there was a work order in process to get the drainage ditch cleaned out. I’ve only see them go over and mow but from the pictures you can see below, it is terribly over grown. Over the years from my recall this has only been dredged out once maybe twice and I’m not sure who did it. It has been neglected for a very long time causing loads of vegetation to grow in the drainage canal and consequently the water flow is basically nonexistent. The stagnant water was checked last year by Pinellas County and loads of mosquito larvae were found and they treated it and my yard and the neighbors unkept swimming pool. We understand that money has been allocated to clean up drainage canal’s and ditches in our area and we would very much like a response from someone as to when we can expect this to be done. We purchased this property 40 yrs ago because it was actually considered on the water. Instead of a beautiful place for the ducks to swim and otters to Roam, it has become a horrible eyesore and we need attention to it .
I am on the corner of 2600 9TH AVE N and 26TH Street N next to the high school football field. 26TH ST N is one way because of the school traffic. My driveway backs out onto 26TH St N. Everyday numerous cars turn off of 9TH AVE N and go the wrong way on 26TH ST N. I have almost been hit backing out of my driveway on numerous occasions not expecting anyone coming the wrong way. I think it is because you can not see the one way arrows painted on the street because they are very worn and the one-way signs are not easily seen when turning off 9th Ave N. The asphalt street is very cracked and broken up. And, one other thing, some years ago a utility contractor must have trenched the road at the foot of my driveway and now the storm water and mud collects at the foot of my driveway because the road was apparently not repaired correctly after the utility work. Maybe resurfacing the short section of 26TH ST N from the school to 9TH AVE would correct the drainage problem and new one-way indicators may help with the dangerous one-way traffic.
Our street has been flooded for a month now. Absolutely NOTHING has been done although I received a message saying it was dealt with and closed out!! I am going to call the health department as well as we have had standing water every day.
This issue hits on a couple issues. Drainage, pot holes, road surface missing and mosquito control. The water always pools in this area and stays for days/weeks causing pot holes to form along with mosquito breeding.
After 10 mins of rain, water reached center double line and didn't flow at all on Southside of 30th ave N between 1116 30th ave N & 1100 30th ave N Southside of road. Water sat in front of 1108 30th ave N reaching double center lines and expanded from alley and 11th street N south side of road. Cars started driving on north side of road in wrong lane as they traveled east towards mlk. The asphalt on this side near curb needs to be raised to help the water flow towards sewers. It seems 30th ave N between 16th street N and MLK might need to be looked at during a rain by higher management cause cars where at a stand still on 30th ave N approaching MLK also. I have pics and videos to show this occurrence it was bad flooding and not nice at all for being a newly paved road.
