The city began construction late last year to capitalize on an $881,000 FDOT grant, which was set to expire at the end of 2017. The majority of the work was completed by last week, the city said. Final stages include the installation of signs, landscaping and a foundation for public artwork.
The city previously approved $150,000 in public art funds to put a sculpture by local artist Jorge Blanco in the center of the roundabout. Crews will install that aluminum sculpture, entitled “Bravo!,” in the summer.
