Motorists should expect detours at the intersection of Main Street and Edgewater Drive (Alt US 19) throughout the four-month project.
Construction is underway for a pedestrian walkway to unite downtown Dunedin with the marina waterfront. The main entrance to the Dunedin Municipal Marina closed May 1 for crews to begin work. Drivers should expect detours at the intersection of Main Street and Edgewater Drive (Alt US 19) throughout the four-month project. Businesses in the marina are open and will continue to serve customers. Crews are installing an 8-foot-wide sidewalk along the north side of Main Street between Victoria Drive and the first driveway on Broadway.

The drawbridge leading to Honeymoon Island became stuck for at least two hours, according to drivers and pedestrians stranded west part on the Dunedin Causeway.
The drawbridge on Dunedin Causeway is open to traffic, officials report. It had become stuck in the up position for at least two hours, according to witness accounts. Traffic was backed up all the way to Honeymoon Island State Park, reports witness Tyler Sontag, who had become stranded after spending his early day enjoying the park. Island Parks Manager Pete Krulder says he does not know what caused the bridge delay. A tweet from Tampa Bay Traffic described it as a "mechanical issue." The drawbridge was reported open to traffic shortly after 2 p.m. [Last updated: Thursday, April 18, 2013 at 3:32 p.m.] Sign up for the free Dunedin Patch email newsletter to stay connected to your community.

One lane of westbound traffic is closed on Causeway Boulevard for a months-long water main replacement project expected to be completed later this year.
Crews began work this week on a months-long project to replace water mains along Causeway Boulevard and at Cedar and Curlew creeks, city records indicate. One westbound lane is closed to traffic, as of Feb. 5. The roughly $2 million project first replaces a 18-inch PVC and ductile iron water main that runs along 1,700 feet of the north side of Causeway Boulevard near the the Bascule drawbridge, city records say. And after the Causeway Boulevard section is complete, two water mains that run along 900 feet of Curlew Road, just across the Bayshore Boulevard intersection will be replaced. Those water mains are under water. One of the mains cuts across 300 feet of Cedar Creek. The other water main crosses 450 feet of Curlew Creek on the golf …

Sheryl Avruch says some extra signage may help point patrons to the Douglas Avenue businesses affected by a major construction project on their street.
Dear Editor, We're approaching the end of Month 1 of road construction. Merchants are putting up with noise, dust, and — most importantly — lost revenue. The road signs help, but there's still a lot of confusion about how to get from Main St. to businesses on Douglas north of Main. I'd like to recommend large signs at both (or is it all?) ends of the detour, with the list of merchants "OPEN FOR BUSINESS." Sheryl Avruch Dunedin Previous Coverage:
