Leslee Lacey tells you what you need to know before making your morning commute.

Looking at Tomorrow’s Traffic Today: In Sarasota, the renovation project along First Street between Pineapple Avenue and US 41 kicks off Monday and will continue through January of 2016. The project is designed to create a more pedestrian-friendly environment in downtown Sarasota. Improvements include widening the sidewalks, burying utility lines, installing decorative street lamps, adding trees and landscaping, and improving the look of on-street parking spaces with brick pavers.

At times, only westbound traffic will be allowed. As the construction progresses, only eastbound traffic will be allowed. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
