The right-of-way (ROW) in the first segment of the project–from Crescent Street to Lovers Lane–was very limited, typically with no more than 50 feet in width. The reconstructed Estero Boulevard in this section provides:
10-foot travel lanes in each direction marked with bicycle “sharrows” for shared use by bicyclists and motorists (this is due to the limited right-of-way)
11-foot center turn lane
9-foot-wide sidewalks on both sides of the road
