Corkscrew Road WideningThe Lee County Department of Transportation is holding a public meeting for the Corkscrew Road Widening Project. The public information meeting will be held on Wednesday, 4-6 p.m. at the Estero Recreation Center. Drop in anytime to view plans. The Lee County project team will be available to answer questions and take comments about the project.

The Traffic Study has been completed that provided information about traffic signals and types of median openings. The median openings will be displayed at the public meeting.

Initial construction of Phase 1 will include six lanes from Ben Hill Griffin Parkway to Fire House Lane and then transition to a four-lane roadway that will extend east to Bella Terra Boulevard. The portion of the roadway from Fire House Lane to Bella Terra Boulevard will be expandable to six lanes in the future.

Following construction of Phase 1, Phase 2 construction will be four lanes from Bella Terra Boulevard to Alico Road.

The roadway medians will vary from 22 to 44 feet and will have Lee County core-level landscaping and street lighting. There will be 11-foot-wide lanes, a 10-foot-wide shared-use path on the south side of the roadway and a 6-foot-wide sidewalk on the north side of the roadway. The project will also include 4-foot-wide on-road bike lanes.
