Sarasota County Wants Input on Possibly Adding Roundabout on Siesta Key

Improvements to are coming to the intersection of State Road 758/Midnight Pass Road at Beach Road on Siesta Key.. that’s the intersection near the Fire Station, just before the Public Beach Parking Lot , as you come onto the Key, from the South Siesta bridge

Sarasota County and the Florida Department of Transportation are seeking resident feedback.

What is currently being planned:

·FDOT will finalize design of the signalized intersection improvement.

Sarasota County will conduct additional public outreach on the viability of a roundabout improvement.

·Public input will be discussed with County Administration and Board of County Commissioners.

If a roundabout is determined as the preferred alternative, the county would fund and complete design of the roundabout for delivery to FDOT by October 2021. Design is estimated to cost $360,000.

·FDOT would fund construction of all improvements beginning in spring 2022.

Public Works is seeking additional input from the public regarding their preference of improvements to the intersection of Beach and Midnight Pass roads.

The intersection alternatives for consideration are an improved signalized intersection or a roundabout.

The public input survey is available now to residents until Oct. 31, 2020.

Following the collection of additional public input, Public Works will present the findings to the Board of County Commissioners in November 2020.
