Here’s Why Neighborhoods Are Happy on Rye Road


SARASOTA, FLORIDA, June 1st, 2016 – Communities along Rye Road, which extends for some six miles northeast from SR 64 in Bradenton to Ruthland Road in Parrish, just got a boost recently. Residents of River’s Reach, Del Tierra, and Rye Wilderness on this stretch are all elated that the Manatee County decided in May 2016 to reduce the road’s speed limit to a safer 45 mph from 55 mph.

In addition, those living in this locality can look forward not only to the early 2017 opening of the strategic Fort Hamer Bridge just west of their neighborhoods. The county’s transportation department is also nearly complete with the designs of Rye Road’s functional improvements, including road widening, shoulder enhancements, and roadside ditch piping.
