The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT is currently preparing design plans for US 41 from Caribbean Drive to SR 72 (Stickney Point Road) for the construction of sidewalks and widening of paved shoulders and turn lanes to accommodate a 6-foot wide bicycle lane. Modifications to existing traffic signals and crosswalks will be made as needed to accommodate the bicycle lanes and new sidewalks. The median openings along the corridor will also be evaluated and modified, as necessary. US 41 and Stickney Point Road intersection safety improvements include removing the free-flow right turn lanes and the islands. The curb will be reconstructed at all corners. A new signal will be constructed with new mast arms and intersection lighting with crosswalk lighting will be installed.
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), District One, is designing improvements on US 41 from Caribbean Drive to SR 72 (Stickney Point Road) in Sarasota County.
The proposed design includes resurfacing of the road to provide 6-foot-wide shoulders that will be utilized as 6-foot-wide buffered bike lanes, and the widening of the right-turn lanes to accommodate the new bike lanes. It will also construct 6-foot-wide sidewalks on both sides of the highway to improve safety for multimodal transportation on this corridor.
Modification of pedestrian sidewalk ramps will take place throughout the project to meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) guidelines, and driveways will be modified as needed to accommodate the new sidewalks and to bring them up to current design standards. FDOT will also construct transit shelter pads and boarding pads along the corridor.
Construction of these improvements is estimated at $9.9 million .
