Lemon Avenue streetscape project

SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - A busy road in downtown Sarasota is getting a makeover.

The Lemon Avenue streetscape project is expected to get underway later this week. The project will cost several millions of dollars.

Crews will replace the asphalt street with brick pavers and remove the curbs to create more open, pedestrian friendly area.

An exact start date has not yet been finalized.
