Transcript of "Sarasota US 41 Bayfront to Bee Ridge transportation concepts"

  1. 1. Coordinate improvements with the Cultural District Master Plan, including improvements to encourage multi-modal access and enhanced recreation. Land uses within the Downtown area are urban in nature, with centralized parking and an emphasis on a walkable and pedestrian friendly downtown. Implement key features of the Bayfront Connectivity Plan to better link the Bayfront to Downtown, including safe pedestrian crossings. Improvements to the corridor reflect complete street design and are based on reduced design speeds. Intersection improvements are designed to include a transit component, including options for Bus Rapid Transit. Goal Statement: 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 Ridge Road; Design a roadway cross-section that accommodates various transit modes; 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.
