FDOT’s US 41 Roundabouts project will require a temporary street closure at 10th Street (West side only) and US 41 in Sarasota County. The closure will occur on Tuesday night/overnight May 15 between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. while crews work to cap/plug a retired water line.
Motorists may use Boulevard of the Arts as an alternate route to access 10th Street. Expect noise from concrete cutting saws, earth moving equipment, backup alarms, pumps etc.
Improvements being made as part of this project consist of reconstructing the signalized intersections and replacing them with roundabouts, enhancing connectivity, circulation and safety. US 41 will be widened between the two intersections and will include bike lanes as well as dedicated turn lanes, a 10-foot sidewalk along the west side, and a 6-foot sidewalk along the east side. Other improvements include raised islands for pedestrian refuge at the intersections of US 41 at 10th Street and 14th Street, pedestrian signals, LED street lights, landscaping, and City of Sarasota utility and underground drainage structure replacements. Estimated completion is spring 2020. The contractor is IBT Construction LLC.
