The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), District One, is hosting a design Public Information Meeting for proposed improvements to US 41 (SR 45) from Blackburn Point Road to SR 72/Stickney Point Road in Sarasota County, Florida.
FDOT will hold the workshop from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, January 24, 2017 at the Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church, 425 S. Tamiami Trail (US 41/SR 45), Osprey, Florida 34229.
The meeting will be in an informal, open house format. You may attend at any time during the open house to view project displays and speak with project team members.
The primary purpose of this project is to create a complete street that serves all users: cars, trucks, transit, pedestrians and bicycles.
The proposed design includes reconstruction of paved shoulders from 4 feet to 7 feet to provide 7-foot-wide buffered bike lanes and the widening of right turn lanes to accommodate for the new bike lanes. The design also includes adding 5-foot-wide concrete sidewalks along both sides of US 41 (SR 45) in the project area where they currently do not exist. Pedestrian crossings will be provided over North, Catfish, Clower, Oscar and Matheny Creeks. Pedestrian sidewalk ramps will be modified throughout the project to meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) guidelines. Driveways will be modified as needed to accommodate the new bike lanes and to bring them up to current design standards. Bus shelter pads will be constructed, and the bus bays will be widened.
