The bulk of efforts should go toward 4 marque projects:
1) Complete the US 19 conversion to a limited access freeway from Pinellas Park north to the Pasco/Pinellas county line, as north county is in dire need of a north-south freeway for easier access to St. Pete and Tampa (and vice versa).
2) Complete the freeway connection from US19 to I-275 along 118th Avenue as this would create one contiguous stop-light-free route north-south through the county, which would do wonders for traffic and economic development;
3) Build light rail as proposed through the alternative analysis study recently completed and in coordination with efforts in Hillsborough County. The key to this really is the Pinellas/Hillsborough connection, as there is opportunity to connect all the region's major urban/employment centers all at once (downtown St. Pete, Gateway, downtown Clearwater, Westshore and downtown Tampa).
4) Implement Bus Rapid Transit and Express Buses along major corridors, particularly along Alternate US 19 from Downtown St. Pete to Tarpon Springs, as this would hit a number of downtowns (St. Pete, Seminole, Largo, Clearwater, Dunedin, Palm Harbor and Tarpon Springs), Ulmerton Road as it is a developing employment corridor, and 49th Street/McMullen Booth/East Lake Road to connect the residential areas to the north to the employment areas in the south of that coridor.
