U.S. 41 Traffic Patterns - Fruitville Rd. closure in early March
 With the combination of road construction along US 41 and seasonal residents returning to enjoy the beautiful winter weather in Sarasota, we’re experiencing some heavy traffic days, especially for those coming off the barrier islands.
In the past, even with all three left turn lanes open for vehicles travelling eastbound on Gulfstream Ave. (from the Ringling Bridge) to northbound US 41, traffic has been known to
stack past Coon Key. Now, intermittent lane closures at 10th Street plus a lane reduction at Gulfstream Ave. are creating some particularly heavy traffic, especially in mid-to-late afternoon.
City staff is in contact with the FDOT team working on the 10th Street roundabout construction to try to alleviate the congestion. We’re told the recent significant backups we’ve seen should cease for the next 2-3 weeks until the next anticipated lane closure near
10th Street.
As for the Gulfstream Ave./US 41 intersection, the third left turn lane heading northbound on US 41 is expected to be re-established in early March. That lane has been temporarily removed while construction crews work on underground utilities and build a temporary diversion roadway on the west side of US 41 for the US 41/Fruitville Rd. roundabout construction.
When the third left turn is re-established in early March, the left turn lane from northbound US 41 to westbound Boulevard of the Arts also will return. In addition, the traffic signal at Fruitville Road will be removed, so traffic will flow freely up to Boulevard of the Arts, which should improve movement from Gulfstream.
With the removal of the traffic signal at Fruitville, Fruitville Rd. will be closed between Cocoanut Ave. and US 41. Again, these traffic changes are expected to occur in early March.
We encourage drivers who want to make that westbound to southbound movement, from Fruitville Rd to US 41, to start planning alternate routes now. Electronic message boards will be installed prior to the Fruitville closure alerting drivers and designating Lemon Ave.
and 10th Street as the official detour to get drivers to US 41, where they can then travel north or southbound to their destination.
Many drivers rely on a navigational app to get around, and we’re pleased to share that Google Maps will alert its users about these significant traffic pattern changes in Sarasota. We’re reaching out to the popular app Waze for directional assistance as well.
The temporary closure of westbound Fruitville Rd. from Cocoanut Ave. will be a challenge for all of us accustomed to traveling Fruitville Rd. Time is on our side to plan ahead and determine alternate routes and even consider different ways to get around including transit, carpool and ride share.
Updates on the project are posted at www.US41FruitvilleRoundabout.com
