LEE COUNTY, Fla.- Construction will begin this summer on a new traffic light at a controversial Fort Myers intersection.
There has been a strong push for a signal at Briarcliff Road and Metro Parkway since the extension opened in October. There have been a number of crashes at the intersection, including one that left David Vanaman in a medically-induced coma for days.
The light will cost about $400,000. The county and FDOT will split the bill.
