Five Points Roundabout

May 21, 2009

This Summer the City of Sarasota will begin the work of installing a roundabout at Five Points on Main Street in Downtown Sarasota.  Additional roundabouts will also be created at the corners of Orange Avenue and Alderman Street and at Ringling Boulevard and Palm Avenue.  The total cost of the three Roundabouts are expected to be $1.5 million.  Fund will come mainly from the Florida State Department of Transportation.  Some funds will also come from sales taxes collected in the City of Sarasota. These improvements to our intersections will make our streets more pedestrian friendly. Possibly more importantly these projects will can be seen as a beautification. Sarasota is already a beautiful place and further improvement and beatification to roads and neighborhood areas is a welcome idea. Take a moment to navigate the embedded maps.
