You would most definitely NOT want to take 41 unless the interstate was closed. Depending on where you start & where you are going your travel time will vary. I used to live on the north end of North Port & I drove to University & 301 in Sarasota. If traffic was good it took 45-50 minutes. If traffic was bad it took about an hour. If the interstate is closed, well, it once took me 2 hours to get home.

There is a lot of bridge construction going on right now, in anticipation of widening I-75 in that area. There are back ups & accidents daily.
