SCAT bus detour through Lake Sarasota will only be occasional

SCAT has been closely involved with the construction contractor in weekly meetings and updates. At this time, SCAT is planning to operate the Route 14 bus along the current route on Bee Ridge Road and loop around Middlesex Place and Berkshire Drive. Construction activities are such that for now two way traffic is being accommodated.

SCAT has submitted a request to remove all bagged bus stop installed along Mauna Loa to the Sarasota County Traffic Engineering department.

SCAT Operations is monitoring traffic and construction activities. If at certain times, the bus route is blocked, SCAT would use Mauna Loa only very temporarily detour (possibly even for only one trip, or portions of day) around the construction delay and would not stop to pick up or discharge passengers.
