Traffic crash investigation planned at U.S. 19 and Curlew Road in Palm Harbor

PALM HARBOR — The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office will be conducting a followup to a traffic accident investigation tonight at U.S. 19 and Curlew Road.

The Sheriff's Office will work in the area from 9:30 p.m. until 1 a.m. Wednesday to complete an investigation that was hampered by poor weather early Friday morning.

In that accident, a deputy driving north on U.S. 19 rammed into the back of a woman's vehicle as she slowed for an ambulance, sending her to a hospital with minor injuries.

The roads will not be shut down during the investigation, but traffic will be slowed as it approaches the intersection for the safety of those working in the area, according to a news release.

  3. Goodbye Tampa Bay Express, hello Tampa Bay Next; but toll lanes aren't going anywhere


    TAMPA — Tampa Bay Express is dead.

    But it's replacement — Tampa Bay Next — will likely include many of the same projects, including express toll lanes on the rebuilt Howard Frankland Bridge.

    The Florida Department of Transportation on Monday announced that it was renaming its Tampa Bay Express plan, also known as TBX. The plan will now be known as Tampa Bay Next, or TBN. DOT officials say there are still re-evaluating the most controversial aspect of the old TBX plan: spend $6 billion to add 90 miles of toll roads to bay area highways - Interstates 4,75 and 275 - that are currently free of tolls. But TBN will keep the plan to add express toll lanes to the rebuilt Howard Frankland Bridge. [Florida Department of Transportation]
