Planned east-west bike route will connect Dunedin, Clearwater



By the end of the year, Dunedin expects to embark on a project to become one of the Tampa Bay region's most bicycle-friendly cities.

On Oct. 1, the city will start accepting contractor bids for the first phase of a three-phase plan to widen sidewalks, pave existing gravel easements and add road markings and signs along Michigan Boulevard, Patricia Avenue, McCarty Street and other north Dunedin roads.

The goal is to eventually tie in with the Progress Energy Trail in Clearwater, which currently ends near Bright House Field but eventually will stretch north around Countryside Mall to Clearwater's Curlew Avenue, just a few hundred feet south of Dunedin's proposed bike path.
