LEE COUNTY, Fla.- A busy Lee County intersection is about to get a lot busier.

Several new businesses and restaurants are moving in near the corner of U.S. 41 and College Pawkway, some of which might be open in less than a month.

Developer Dan Creighton said Culver's, a burger chain based in the Midwest, is set to open in early June.  Following suit, he said will be Chipotle, WaWa, Pollo Tropical and a mattress store.

"Within the next 20 days, all the landscaping will be done, all the parking fields will be done, all the irrigation, lighting, infrastructure -- all will be complete," Creighton said. "We're just trying to beautify the city, bring new jobs, try to invigorate the community, and thats kind of what we've done. We've kind of revitalized this corner." appene

The new construction is happening at the former site of the Clarion Hotel, which employed several dozen people before it was demolished last year.  Creighton said the new businesses are expected to bring as many as 400 new jobs to the area.

Creighton also purchased a parcel of land on the opposite side of U.S. 41. He said it will be the future site of a bank and a retailer. Crews are expected to break ground in the next 30 days.
