Within Segment 2, roadway improvements will include a center turn lane, bicycle lanes in each direction and sidewalks on both sides of the road. Trolley stops will incorporate travel lane shifts that will allow vehicles to pass stopped trolleys. In these areas, there will not be a center turn lane. The reconstructed Estero Boulevard in this section provides:
10-foot travel lanes in each direction
5-foot designated bicycle lanes in each direction
6-foot-wide sidewalks on both sides of the road
Green spaces that separate the roadway from the sidewalk
