Important Notice: St. Augustine Avenue, on the island of Venice, is a one-way street westbound as of Dec. 5. The decision to make it one way was in an effort to eliminate some of the confusing traffic pattern and congestion on Tampa Avenue, where four areas used to pour into Tampa in a just a few feet. Please watch for signs and enter St. Augustine only from Tampa Avenue. To travel eastbound to Tampa Avenue in that area, use Nokomis Avenue. Law enforcement will issue tickets to wrong-way drivers.
