The intersection of Main Street and Palm Avenue will close for the next three weeks beginning September 25, 2013. The City of Sarasota mapped suggested detours (see illustration at left).
Crews will install brick paver crosswalks. Part of the summer improvements to Downtown Sarasota, the work schedule aims to skirt High Season when visitors flock to Sarasota.
Looking at the summary of planned Main Street Improvements, we've only just begun. Divided into three segments, the project has a completion date of November 5, 2013.
The Main Street-Palm Avenue cross walk is part of the first work segment. Add to that a new roundabout at Orange Avenue and Main Street to be completed by July 15, 2014.
