SARASOTA, FL (WWSB) - The intersection of Orange Avenue and Ringling Boulevard, the site of a new roundabout, is now open to all traffic.

Crews completed the final improvements to the downtown roundabout this afternoon, removing the safety barricades and opening the road.

City officials hope the change will improve traffic flow as well as driver and pedestrian safety.

This is the sixth roundabout to be added to the mobility structure in Downtown Sarasota since 2010.
