The City's Bayfront has historically been considered 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.

Following upon the adopted recommendations from the City of Sarasota's "Connecting the Downtown to the Bayfront" project, Florida DOT has sponsored Phase 1 of the Program, which performs engineering and feasibility analyses for the section of US 41 between 10th Street and 14th Street located in downtown Sarasota.

The objective of this project is to improve multi-modal accessibility along the corridor in both the east-west and the north-south directions, while also maintaining the existing vehicle capacity. The evaluation of roundabouts, multi-use trails, pedestrian crossings, and landscaping, are some of the elements included in this project.
