There are two major components of the reFRESH Fort Myers Beach project. The reFRESH Estero Boulevard Project was funded by Lee County and included any utility and streetscape improvements on Estero Boulevard. Included with the utility updates, Florida Power & Light improved reliability and relocated utility poles and overhead power lines to the edge of the right-of-way. Simultaneously, the Town of Fort Myers Beach replaced waterlines and storm drainage along Estero Boulevard as well as side streets with the reFRESH Fort Myers Beach Waterlines Project.
Lee County’s Utility and Streetscape Improvements Six miles of Estero Boulevard on Fort Myers Beach from Crescent Street to Big Carlos Pass were reconstructed to improve utilities and the streetscape. Two major goals of this project included improving safety for all users (motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians), and improving drainage. Learn more.
