The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District One is preparing a Corridor Vision Plan for SR 780 (Fruitville Road) in Sarasota County, for a length of approximately 6 miles, US 301 to just east of I-75. This plan would evaluate the existing conditions of the corridor including traffic/safety, socioeconomic and cultural resources, and multi-modal connections and opportunities. The plan will also assess the land use adjacent to the corridor, local municipal policies (e.g. Community Redevelopment Areas), concurrent planning, and public input. The goal is to formulate a Corridor Vision Plan that will be reflective of where the community would like to be and how FDOT, as a partner, can better understand the area’s needs.
