Pinellas County Government
This three-year Pinellas County project will design, permit, and construct dune walkovers along a stretch of beach at Ft. De Soto Park, from the Gulf Pier parking lot northward to the North Beach parking lots. Due to the long distances a dune walkover must be constructed to carry pedestrian traffic at the project site, the current funding level is expected to allow construction of at least 2 walkovers in the areas of greatest need to protect the fragile vegetated dune system. The walkovers will serve to minimize human impacts thus serving to protect and conserve wildlife habitat and other living coastal and marine resources, as well as enhance community resilience and improve infrastructure sustainability through maintaining a continuous shore-parallel dune.
This map shows a general area in which project actions will be implemented. At this time, the specific project location and extent is unknown or unavailable. The true project extent is likely much smaller than the focal area.↩
