Median clearing is well underway for the Downtown Venice Beautification Project. Although 70 trees are being removed due to disease or damage from Hurricane Irma, over 300 are going back in, including many palms. Also, all shops and restaurants remain open, so come downtown and support local businesses! Eastbound W. Venice Ave. is currently closed to through traffic but westbound W. Venice Ave. remains open during this phase, along with crosswalks to safely get across the street. Motorists may also use W. Miami or W. Tampa avenues as a detour. Come watch us transform!

The work includes constructing stormwater and drainage improvements, installing new landscaping and streetscape elements, and adding “sharrow” (share the road) markings for bicyclists, and lighting conduits for a future streetlight project. The contractor, Quality Enterprises USA Inc., will install additional stop signs to convert three intersections (Venice Avenue at Nokomis Avenue, Venice Avenue at Nassau Street, and Tampa Avenue at Nokomis Avenue) to become four-way stops. The contractor will also place new asphalt on the streets in the project area. Additional safety improvements include installing mid-block crosswalks with in-pavement lighting, reducing crossing distances for pedestrians, and installing pedestrian fencing to guide pedestrians. Quality Enterprises will also replace cracked sidewalks and upgrade ADA features such as curb ramps. Some palm trees in the medians and in front of businesses are slated to be removed due to disease or damage, but will be replaced.
