reFRESH Estero Boulevard crews began construction in November 2015 to improve all six miles of Estero Boulevard on Fort Myers Beach. Lee County improvements include sidewalks on both sides of the road, trolley stops, drainage improvements on Estero Boulevard and connection to the Town of Fort Myers Beach’s drainage projects. Sewer force mains, and relocation of existing utilities, including FPL power poles, telephone and cable lines will also be completed.

Florida Power & Light’s Strengthening Project will improve reliability and relocate utility poles and overhead power lines to the edge of the right-of-way. This is part of an ongoing planned project that will maximize the sidewalk width available for pedestrians and for bicyclists who choose not to ride in the roadway.

Lee County Department of Transportation continues to work with LeeTran to improve trolley stop and crosswalk locations. At some trolley stops, design plans incorporate travel lane shifts that allow vehicles to continue past stopped trolleys. Street lighting at crosswalks will be improved and landscaping opportunities will be included where space is available.
