The new roundabout at the intersection of Orange Avenue and Ringling Boulevard in Sarasota opened to traffic on Wednesday. The City of Sarasota project began last November and included infrastructure upgrades like a new water line, additional lighting for the road and sidewalk and landscaping improvements. The city will install a new aluminum sculpture by Sarasota artist Jorge Blanco in the center of the roundabout later this year.
