FDOT public info session on Bypass widening project 3/19

Post Date:03/01/2019 3:46 PM

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will hold a preconstruction public information meeting at the Venice Community Center, 326 Nokomis Ave. S., on Tuesday, March 19. Representatives will be available from 5-7 p.m. to answer any questions about the U.S. 41 (Venice Bypass) Widening Project from Center Road to Gulf Coast Boulevard.

The meeting is being held to give interested parties the opportunity to talk one-on-one with staff and ask questions about improvements coming to the Bypass on this stretch. The 1.5-mile project will widen the Bypass from a 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 stormwater improvements, and lighting. This project is expected to be completed in spring 2021.

If you have questions or would like to have more info about this project, please contact the Public Information Line at 941-216-2010 or email
