Lee County’s Utility & Streetscape Improvements
reFRESH Estero Boulevard crews began construction in November 2015 to improve all six miles of Estero Boulevard on Fort Myers Beach. Lee County improvements included 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 were also completed.
Lee County Department of Transportation worked with LeeTran to improve trolley stop and crosswalk locations. At some trolley stops, design plans incorporated travel lane shifts where possible 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.
