FORT MYERS BEACH, Fla.- Tens of thousand of people hit the road on Fort Myers Beach every day, according Lee County's Department of Transportation. The main drag, Estero Boulevard, is the only way on and off the island.
The Department of Transportation is conducting an online survey for feedback on plans for redevelopment of the seven mile corridor between Crescent Street and Big Carlos Pass.
Preliminary plans for redevelopment include sidewalk improvements, lighting, crosswalks, landscaping, and trolley turnarounds. The idea is to encourage more people to use other modes of transportation, to get fewer vehicles on the road, according to the project manager.
The plans, which can be viewed online, divide Fort Myers Beach into six sections, each with its own unique set of challenges.
People are encouraged to go online and help the department prioritize the work, while answering questions about how they travel on the beach.
The public is also encouraged to attend a workshop on February 28th at St. Peter Evangelical Lutheran Church. The worshop will run from 4:30-6:30 PM.
