Construction to replace the signalized intersection of Ringling Boulevard and Pine Place in Sarasota with a modern roundabout is anticipated to begin April 29.

This project will complete a string of roundabouts along Ringling Boulevard: Palm Avenue, Pineapple Avenue, Orange Avenue, and now Pine Place.

Ajax Paving Company is the project contractor.

Replacing the signalized intersection with a modern roundabout will increase the continuous flow of traffic and contribute to safer roadways. Studies have shown that roundabouts result in 80% fewer serious crashes on average.

The project will include warning lights for marking pedestrian crossings, paver brick crosswalks, a landscaped center island, and improvements to surrounding green spaces.

Construction is expected to be completed by January 2025.
