Construction Updates

RoadWatch Advisory for the
City of Fort Myers S.R. 82 Widening Project


On Sunday, February 5, during the nighttime/overnight hours from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m., travel lanes on Colonial/Lee Boulevard through the intersection with S.R. 82 will shift south to the newly constructed roadway. The intersection of SR 82 and Colonial/Lee Boulevard will be reduced to one through lane in each direction while crews relocate traffic signals, restripe lanes and shift traffic. Left turns will NOT be allowed. Motorists should expect travel delays and periodic road closures (5 to 7 minute intervals). Law enforcement officers will be on site at the intersection to direct motorists and to assist during the lane shifts. Variable message signs will alert motorists to changing traffic patterns. Motorists are advised to USE CAUTION driving in this area. If possible, motorists are asked to seek alternate routes Sunday night until crews complete the lane shift work.

This traffic shift is necessary for crews to install underground utilities and construct future westbound Colonial/Lee Boulevard travel lanes as part of the City of Fort Myers’ S.R. 82 Widening Project. This project is expected to be complete in summer 2012.
