From Sarasota County:

Beginning June 12, Higel Avenue from Mangrove Point Road to Midnight Pass Road, and Ocean Boulevard from Gleason Avenue to Higel Avenue, will be closed for the installation of a mini roundabout at Higel Avenue and Ocean Boulevard on Siesta Key.  

Motorists are encouraged to follow detour signs, seek alternative routes and take caution when approaching the construction area. The project is anticipated to be completed by June 23.  

The intersection at Higel Avenue and Ocean Boulevard has a history of crashes that are considered correctable by changing the intersection control from a stop sign to a roundabout which will improve intersection safety.
