SARASOTA, Fla. -- Construction on Sarasota's newest roundabout has shut down a section of Honore Avenue.

The latest roundabout is being installed at the intersection of Richardson Road, just north on Fruitvillle Road. Prep work at that site has been happening for months, with crews recently finishing the installation of pedestrian sidewalks.

On Monday, Honore Avenue was closed to traffic as crews moved in more heavy machinery and began working on the center median. Cars must now use Richardson Road to detour around the construction.

The project is expected to be complete in the fall.
