Public Hearing for Six Mile Cypress Parkway/Gladiolus and US 41 Intersection Improvements Project
FDOT announces a public hearing about plans to improve Lee county's most dangerous intersection. The meeting will be held on Thursday, August 17, 2017, at the Florida Southwestern State College. All interested parties are invited to attend.
Fort Myers, FL -- The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), District One, is holding a public hearing about design plans to improve the intersection of Six Mile Cypress Parkway/Gladiolus Drive (SR 865) and US 41 in Lee County. The hearing will be held on Thursday, August 17, 2017, at the Florida Southwestern State College, 8099 College Parkway, Building AA, Room 177, Fort Myers, FL 33919.
There will be an open house at 5 p.m. during which staff will be available to discuss the project and answer questions, followed by the formal hearing presentation at 6 p.m., after which participants may provide verbal or written comments. People attending the meeting can review project displays and speak one-on-one with project team members about the proposed capacity and safety improvements to Six Mile Cypress Parkway/Gladiolus Drive (SR 865) and US 41.
The project will add an additional westbound through lane on Six Mile Cypress Parkway, increase capacity of the eastbound turn lanes, and improve the pedestrian crossings at the intersection. As part of these improvements, the closure of the eastbound left turn entrance for the Parker Promenade shopping plaza west of the intersection is being considered. The estimated construction cost is $2.1 million and construction should begin during the summer of 2018.
The draft project documents and other information will be available for public review from July 27 through August 28, 2017 at the Lakes Regional Library, 15290 Bass Road, Fort Myers, FL 33919.
