    Sarasota US 41 North Trail transportation concepts Sarasota US 41 North Trail transportation concepts Document Transcript

    • Wider sidewalks are needed, particularly near parks, schools, attractions, and other pedestrian traffic areas. The roadway cross-section should be designed for slower speeds and safely accommodate bicyclists, pedestrian crossings, and transit stops. Land Uses immediately along the corridor should include 3-4 story buildings with commercial, tourist accommodations, multi- family and mixed-use structures. Intersection improvements may include possible roundabouts, intersection treatments, or other multi-modal intersection im- provements. Two roundabouts are under design for the intersections of 14th Street and 10th Street, with submission to FDOT in January 2011. 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.
