Crews continue landscaping, installation of sod, installation of lighted midblock crosswalks on W. Venice Avenue, and installation of ADA features at the crosswalks. The contractor is also completing punch list items throughout the project. Motorists should continue to expect single lane closures to allow crews to safely work.

Trash cans

The majority of the new trash cans have been installed throughout the project. As a reminder, these trash cans are for downtown visitors. Businesses are urged to use their dumpsters instead of the trash cans along the sidewalks. If you would like more information about dumpsters or trash pickup, please contact the City of Venice at 941-486-2422.
