Sarasota/Manatee Barrier Islands Traffic Study
The Sarasota/Manatee Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) requested that the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), District One, perform a comprehensive study to determine and recommend potential solutions to vehicle including bicycle, parking and pedestrian circulation issues on the barrier islands, as well as the island-to-mainland connections to the east. The study will identify all key issues, as well as possible alternatives and recommendations.
