Bee Ridge Road Design Goes Forward

Statement from the Bee Ridge Neighborhoods Committee regarding County Commission vote on Bee Ridge Rd. Widening, taken today:

The Sarasota County Commissioners approved the proposal and bid amount for the Design and Engineering of Bee Ridge Road at the July 26 Commission meeting. The winning bidder was Cardeno TBE and the amount approved was $1.63 million dollars.

The actual Design and Engineering will take approximately 18 to 20 months before the final plan is submitted to the Commissioners for approval.

When the initial Design reaches about 30% completion, the County staff will hold a public community review so that residents can view the design and get questions answered. It is anticipated this review will be toward the end of this year.

Your Bee Ridge Neighborhoods Committee will work closely with County staff and Cardeno as the design progresses to insure our previously developed suggestions are incorporated in the design.

If there are any questions, please contact your Bee Ridge Neighborhoods Committee representative and we will do our best to answer them.
