Construction began on the Town’s new traffic signal at the intersection of Old San Carlos and Estero Boulevards on Monday, August 16, 2021.
The work is expected to be complete by the end of 2021. Motorists should anticipate periodic lane closures and delays in the area and some work taking place at night.
Ajax Paving Industries of Florida, LLC, is the contractor, and will be managing traffic. Two signalization mast arms and associated equipment are to be installed.
The Local Agency Program (LAP) through the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is the funding source for this project. Estimated cost is $776,511. This is the Town’s first LAP project since certification was obtained in 2020.
Lee County is also planning to install a second new signal at the intersection of Crescent Street and Estero Boulevard starting approximately in May of 2022. This signal is also to be completed with FDOT funding.
Call the Town’s Public Works Department at 239-765-0202 with any questions. Progress of both projects will be shared on the Town's Facebook and Twitter pages, as well as on the homepage of the website.
