Sarasota, FL: A new website providing information about a significant future project on Osprey Avenue is now available. The website can be found at:

The Osprey Avenue infrastructure improvement project will include: upgrading major utility mains, sidewalks, new curbing, driveway aprons, and resurfacing the road – all in two phases.

The construction work will be split into segments within two phases:

Phase I: Siesta Drive to Bahia Vista Road – scheduled to begin in January 2017
Phase II: Novus Street to Main Street – scheduled to begin in March 2017.

“The City’s infrastructure located along this important street no longer provides the level of service to meet our standards,” said Bill Swick, City of Sarasota Project Manager. “The City has a continuing program of replacing failing infrastructure and Osprey Avenue’s time has now come. We understand there will be a level of inconvenience and we’ll do our best to minimize the impact. We’re reaching out to residents well in advance so the community is aware of this pending project.”

To minimize motorists’ inconvenience and maximize productivity, the City is taking extra measures to ensure these Utilities and Public Works projects are combined and the timing coordinated.

The dedicated website, provides an overview of the project, construction schedule and frequently asked questions. A link to the website is posted on the City of Sarasota website and can be found by clicking the construction hard hat on the homepage.
