Construction is underway on two Legacy Trail pedestrian and bicycle overpasses in Sarasota County.
The Florida Department of Transportation projects are at the Bee Ridge Road and Clark Road crossings.
The primary purpose is to improve pedestrian and bicycle safety for trail users.
Retaining wall ramps will be built on both approaches to each bridge for stability and aesthetics along with minor roadway and trail modifications to accommodate the new bridges. New signals at both intersections will also provide safer crossings.
The bridges will be completed in winter of 2024. To minimize inconvenience, needed shoulder and/or lane closures will be mostly limited to overnight hours.
