It should be smooth sailing for Pinellas Trail users from now on. A repaving project on a stretch of the trail from Dunedin to Palm Harbor was completed Friday.
Pinellas Trial enthusiasts have had to walk, jog, rollerblade and bicycle around workers who've been repaving the trail over the last couple months. But it should be smooth sailing for Pinellas Trail users from now on. The paving project was completed Friday, according to Billy Dover of Lane Construction, the company that was contracted to do the work.

The five-mile-long repaving project began at Michigan Boulevard in Dunedin and ended at Oceanview Avenue in Palm Harbor.
