SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - The Unconditional Surrender statue was moved to its new location allowing for continued construction for the U.S. 41 Roundabout on the Bayfront.

The City of Sarasota posted the entirety of the removal on its Facebook page. Earlier this year, the City decided to keep the statue along the Bayfront after public outcry at its potential removal.

The statue would have still had to have been moved as workers continue to work on the roundabout in the area.

The WWII monument was moved to its new location between O’Leary’s Tiki Bar and Grill and Marina Jack.

Construction on the roundabout at Gulfstream Avenue and U.S. 41 will start in February.
