LEE COUNTY, Fla.- A new turn lane on MLK Blvd. near I-75, is causing confusion for drivers in Lee County. The problem is: the turn lane doesn't lead anywhere.
"It's a big confusing mess out here," said Driver Laurie Summeralls.
Over and over, Lee County drivers are getting duped by a turning lane that leads to nowhere.
"When I get out there my anxiety just goes straight through the roof," said Driver Crystal Robinson.
Drivers think the road will lead them to I-75 but halfway through the turn...it ends. The maneuvering is part of Laurie Summerall's daily commute.
"I drive this road everyday. I come from Felda out by Immokalee and I mean it's ridiculous. The lanes are not what you think they are. You can be going andthinking you're turning and it just stops," she said.
The road construction project just wrapped up. The cones and signs signaling a change are gone. Eventually the turning lane will lead to a commercial development which is next to a new Racetrack gas station being built.
"It's scary at times. You know you know you're doing okay but you're just hoping somebody is paying attention."
