Looking at Tomorrow’s Traffic Today, in Sarasota, construction will begin on the diverging diamond intersection. It’s located at University Parkway and I-75 and is supposed to help ease congestion and reduce accidents. The construction will last approximately two years and will also add a bike lane and a pedestrian-friendly area. This type of intersection is the first of its kind in Florida. Drivers should expect delays and intermittent lane closures, especially in the overnight hours.
