Transforming a major downtown intersection where five streets meet has not been easy for retailers and drivers –  But I think Downtown Sarasota will benefit in the end..

And the end is slated for October. 2010 

 Once it is complete pedestrians will find it easier to cross  the five streets and motorists will navigate the intersection in a perpetual motion without getting stopped by red lights.  There will be 8 or so different species of plants in the center of the roundabout which is always a good thing.  

 Downtown Sarasota  also has the parking garage on Palm to look forward to. It is presently under contruction.
