Sarasota City Manager Tom Barwin made it clear last week that the roundabout at U.S. 41 and Fruitville Road will be coming soon. Barwin said construction could start as soon as this July, and he wanted people to “prepare mentally and vehicularly.”

Nearby, the roundabouts that are currently under construction at 10th Street and 14th Street on U.S. 41 should be completed by the end of this year.

Eventually, public art will adorn the center of all of the roundabouts. The entire effort is part of the ongoing plan by the Florida Department of Transportation along with the City in an effort to make the city increasingly pedestrian friendly and to use roundabouts as the preferred means for traffic movement.
