SARASOTA COUNTY - Sarasota County and the Florida Department of Transportation will host an open house to update the public on improvements to the Jacaranda Boulevard roundabout.
The open house, scheduled for 4-7 p.m. Wednesday, March 22, at Woodmere Park in Venice, is being held in conjunction with the FDOT improvement project now under way at the roundabout at Jacaranda Boulevard and Venice Avenue. The project is intended to improve current operations and reduce crashes. It is scheduled to be completed in early summer 2017, weather permitting.
Staff from Sarasota County and FDOT will be available at the open house to answer questions. An instructional video on driving the roundabout will be shown, and attendees will have an opportunity for hands-on participation. There will be no formal presentation, and residents can stop by at any time between 4 and 7.
Woodmere Park is located at 3951 Woodmere Park Blvd., Venice.
