Project Overview

reFRESH Fort Myers Beach Overview

There are two major components of the reFRESH Fort Myers Beach project. The reFRESH Estero Boulevard Project is funded by Lee County and includes any utility and streetscape improvements on Estero Boulevard. Included with the utility updates, Florida Power & Light will improve reliability and relocate utility poles and overhead power lines to the edge of the right-of-way. Simultanious, the Town of Fort Myers Beach will replace 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 will be reconstructed to improve utilities and the streetscape. Two major goals of this project include improving safety for all users (motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians), and improving drainage. Learn more.

The Town of Fort Myers Beach’s Replacement of Water Mains
Waterlines throughout the island are being replaced with a new, reliable water system. Storm drainage and outfall improvements will also be made throughout the island. Work will be done on Estero Boulevard as well as various side streets. Learn more.

Work Schedule

Crews typically work during the daytime between the hours from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Some night and weekend work may be necessary. Motorists should expect changes to traffic patterns with possible intermittent lane closures. The goal of both Lee County and the Town of Fort Myers Beach is to minimize interruptions during peak season as much as possible; however, construction of this project will be year-round.
