Venice Bypass Project

Client: Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) – T1606
Location: Sarasota County, Florida
Project Type: Roadway Construction
Procurement Type: Contract – $16.6 Million

To accommodate the ever increasing traffic of Florida’s west coast, Bergeron Land Development widened 1.38 miles of SR 45A/Venice Bypass from Gulf Coast Blvd. to north of Bird Bay Dr. The project, which began in November 2015, turned the existing roadway from a four-lane to a six-lane divided highway.

The roadway construction project included manipulating traffic patterns, extending existing major drainage conveyances with tidal flow, removing and replacing existing dry and wet utilities, storm drainage, medians, sidewalks, lighting, and traffic signals.
