Bayfront

Downtown Connectivity

Client:

City of Sarasota, Florida

Background:

The City's Bayfront is considered to be an underutilized recreational destination of parks and cultural amenities located directly on the waterfront. The City of Sarasota has seen a significant growth in residential and commercial development around Downtown during the past 10 years. However, the relatively high-speed, pedestrian-unfriendly character of US 41 separating the Downtown and the Bayfront has remained unchanged.

Progressive strategies and improvement projects to improve accessibility for non- motorized travel were developed. The improvement projects were coordinated through a significant public involvement effort to facilitate the engineering and design tasks of the project.
