Historic Fort De Soto gets fortified

Historic Fort De Soto gets fortified | Tampa Bay, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Sarasota |

In spite of the current budget hardships, there are some things that just can't be avoided. It's costing over a million dollars to fix the drainage problems at the fort.

It's been a problem that has been recognized for several years, but doing major work on a 100 year old fort takes lots of planning.

The fort area will be closed to the public until March, but the rest of the park will continue operate as usual.
