Pre-Construction Public Information Meeting
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), District One, is holding a public information meeting for planned improvements to US 41 (Venice Bypass). The purpose of the meeting is to inform the community of the project and planned detours during construction.
The public meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 19, 2019, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Venice Community Center, 326 South Nokomis Avenue, Venice, Florida 34285.
People attending the meeting can review project displays and speak one-on-one with members of the project team. The meeting will be an open house format, so no formal presentation will be made.
This 1.5-mile project will widen US 41 (Venice Bypass) from four-lane to a six-lane roadway through this part of Sarasota County, tie into the recently completed Venice Bypass project to the north, and greatly improve the traffic flow and safety throughout this heavily traveled corridor. Other improvements include replacement of traffic signals, installing new pavement markings and signage, installing concrete curb, sidewalks and traffic separator, drainage and storm water system improvements, and lighting. This project is expected to finish spring of 2021. Lane closures and temporary lane shifts on US 41 (Venice Bypass) will occur during daytime and nighttime/overnight hours, weather permitting. Detours will be put in place to allow motorists to bypass the construction zones.
