The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), District One, is designing improvements to multiple intersections along State Road (SR) 683 (US 301) in Sarasota County. The project was requested by the FDOT District One Traffic Safety Department and is intended to improve safety, enhance traffic flow, and reduce crashes.
The project includes implementing various improvements to four (4) intersections along SR 683 (US 301): 12th Street, 17th Street, 21st Street, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Way. Proposed improvements include adding signal heads, additional signage, and special emphasis crosswalks. Additional improvements include a proposed restricted crossing U-turn (RCUT) at the 21st Street intersection including Pedestrian Hybrid Beacons (PHB) on mast arm assemblies.
