This is an update to a previous post I wrote about the upcoming road enhancements for a roundabout at Ashton Road and Honore Avenue. Construction has finally commenced on the much anticipated Roundabout at Ashton Road and Honore Avenue which should alleviate congestion at what is now a 4-way stop intersection. This is something that needed to be done due to the continued real estate growth the county is experiencing. My family, along with others from ASHTON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, SARASOTA MIDDLE and NEW GATE will undoubtedly experience delays in walking and driving our children to school. However, once completed, this roundabout should allow for a more fluid driving experience not only during school drop off and pick-up, but in general.
Below is a conceptual rendering of the roundabout at Ashton Road and Honore Avenue.
The SARASOTA COUNTY PROJECT LIST list does not include this particular roundabout project and the previous county link I had used is no longer working. I have a call into the county to see if I can be directed to the proper page and will update it when given this info.
