Project Profile:

Entryway to Clearwater Beach

Project Summary

Clearwater Beach is a popular area for enjoying the water, sand, restaurants, shops, and local entertainment. The congestion of so much traffic was improved by building a roundabout, wide sidewalks, and convenient parking areas. Grasspave2 was used to improve the wearability of grass in this high traffic area on both sides of the highway leading toward the fountain in the middle of the roundabout.

Permeable pavers were installed along the walkways using Grasspave2.
Wide sidewalks and Grasspave2 reinforced grass gives plenty of room for maintenance vehicles.
Turf Reinforcement was installed along the walkways using Grasspave2.
Brick paving was used at crossing points where the pedestrian traffic would be at a high level. There is a limit to what amount of daily traffic grass can withstand.
