City of Fort Myers S.R. 82 Widening Project


S.R. 82: from Ortiz Avenue to Lee/Colonial Boulevard

Beginning at approximately 7 a.m. on Sunday (July 24), travel lanes on S.R. 82 will shift to the newly constructed north side roadway from just east of Omni Lane to just west of the S.R. 82 and Colonial/Lee Boulevard intersection. Motorists should expect travel delays and periodic road closures (5 to 7 minute intervals) while crews restripe lanes and shift traffic. Flaggers will be at all approaching roadways to direct motorists and law enforcement officers will be on site to assist during the lane shift. If possible, motorists are asked to seek alternate routes Sunday until crews complete the lane shift work (before 6 a.m. Monday morning).

From Ortiz Avenue to Teter Road, two travel lanes in each direction will be maintained and at least one travel lane in each direction from Teter Road to just west of the S.R. 82 and Colonial/Lee Boulevard intersection will be maintained after the traffic shift is completed.

Southbound travel lanes on S.R. 82 are shifted to the west at the intersection of S.R. 82 and Colonial/Lee Boulevard. There is one travel lane in each direction on S.R. 82. Eastbound travel lanes on Colonial/Lee Boulevard are shifted to the north at the intersection of S.R. 82 and Colonial/Lee Boulevard. There are two travel lanes open in each direction. Motorists are advised to USE EXTREME CAUTION driving in this area. Crews are reconstructing the new northbound travel lanes of S.R. 82 and the new eastbound travel lanes of Colonial/Lee Boulevard. This traffic shift is expected to remain in place for approximately six months.

The right turn lane from eastbound Colonial/Lee Boulevard onto southbound S.R. 82 will be shortened while crews install underground utilities.
