Phase I of construction is anticipated to take place from October 2019 to mid-January 2020.

During this phase, traffic will be shifted to the west side of US 41 while crews begin construction of utility and storm drain crossings across US 41 during nighttime hours.

At the same time, crews will construct a temporary detour along the west side of US 41 between Boulevard of the Arts to just south of Fruitville Road.


Motorists can visit our Road Alerts page for the latest information about possible road closures.

Two lanes of traffic will be maintained in each direction on US 41 during this phase of construction, and pre-existing conditions will remain the same for eastbound and westbound traffic on Fruitville Road within the project limits

There will not be access from US 41 to the alley just south of Fruitville Road during this phase.

The City of Sarasota in coordination with The Florida Department of Transportation and The Quay are improving this key intersection to improve connectivity, access, and safety for pedestrian, bicycle and vehicular traffic flow and operations between downtown Sarasota and the Bayfront area.
