John Yarbrough Linear Park Phase IV Feasibility Study
Located within the City of Fort Myers and unincorporated Lee County, the John Yarbrough Linear Park Trail is an existing, non-motorized transportation and recreation corridor, currently extending approximately six (6) miles, from Six Mile Cypress Parkway to Colonial Boulevard. The City has entered into a Joint Participation Agreement with the FDOT to determine the viability of extending the John Yarbrough Linear Park Trail approximately 1.8 miles north, from Colonial Boulevard to Hanson Street.
Winkler Canal Shared-Use Path Feasibility Study
The City of Fort Myers is seeking to determine the feasibility of constructing a shared-use path between Winkler Canal and the Fort Myers Country Club/Hill Avenue from west of US 41/Cleveland Avenue to McGregor Boulevard. The Feasibility Study will identify right-of-way, concept design, safety, security, maintenance, and environmental issues related to development of a 10-foot wide shared-use path within the project study area.
The workshop is an opportunity for the public to review and comment on the status of the studies. City of Fort Myers staff and the project team will be available to answer your questions about the studies.
