St. Petersburg Drive Closure Oct. 10

St. Petersburg Drive will be closed from Dartmouth Avenue to State Street on Monday, October 10th from approximately 8:00 am to 2:00 pm. Traffic will be routed through Arlington Avenue, and the library will still be accessible via Dartmouth Avenue during this time. This map should help you plan an alternate route if needed, as only the block directly in front of the library will be closed.

This is the first step towards the beautification of St Petersburg Drive which the City has planned. You can read more about the project here.
