Lee County commissioners Tuesday unanimously agreed to move forward with plans to install a traffic signal at Del Prado Boulevard and Northeast 3rd Terrace.
The decision comes more than two years after 13-year-old Ryan Santos was struck by a car and killed on his way to Del Prado Park.
While a traffic signal on the street isn’t called for by the Federal Highway Administration, the nearby park makes it a unique situation, according to county officials.
RaceTrac, which has a gas station and store at that intersection, has offered to pay an estimated $300,000 to install the signal.
