Construction underway to add diverging diamond interchange at I-75 and Clark Road in Sarasota

July 6, 2022

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is improving the interchange at Interstate 75 (I-75) and Clark Road in Sarasota. the area is being transformed into an eight-lane divided diverging diamond. 

“It’s a little bit of a navigational learning experience,” said FDOT’s Adam Rose. “But once we get into those phases where it’s being learned, everything will start running faster, it’ll start flowing better. It’ll be safer. It cuts back on fatal wrecks and injuries.”

Currently, FDOT is installing noise walls, and as part of the project, they plan on widening I-75.

A few miles away, another project is underway that will add a diamond design and bridges at U.S. 301 and I-75 in Manatee County. FDOT is urging motorists to be patient with the construction and with the traffic.

“Yes, it is frustrating to always go through traffic delays, backups, stuff like that road work,” said Rose. “It’s an annoyance, but also it’s a necessity.”

This project got underway last year, and FDOT plans on it being finished in late 2023.
