The goal of the City of Sarasota is to have a US 41 Corridor that is
context sensitive to the fabric of the surrounding neighborhoods and
land uses. To achieve this goal, the City has set the following
parameters and goals for the roadway:
Requesting a corridor with design speeds of 25 to 30 miles per hour
from the US 301 intersection north to City Limits, and design speeds
of 30-35 miles per hour from the US 301 intersection south to Bee
Design a roadway cross-section that accommodates various transit
Provide intersection improvements at key intersections, with a focus
on multimodal transportation, including transit.
Overall, the plan should link land use with transportation and facilitate a
shift from an auto-centric system to one that allows for a variety of
modal choices, including walking, biking and transit.
