Come to 8/18 ribbon-cutting ceremony for Sanibel Causeway toll plaza bicycle access improvements
The Lee County Board of County Commissioners, in partnership with LeeDOT, Parks & Rec, the MPO, and BikeWalkLee, is hosting this ceremony on Wednesday, August 18, at 11 a.m. The ceremony will be held under the bridge on the Fort Myers side. Enter the boat ramp parking lot off of Punta Rassa Road. For those of you planning to ride your bikes, you may want to join a bike club ride to the event:
From Sanibel, the Sanibel Bicycle Club will start from the Chamber of Commerce parking lot at 10:15 a.m. and ride over the bridges to the event.
From Fort Myers, the Caloosa Rider's Bicycle Club has organized a 40 mile ride that morning which will leave from the Publix parking lot 20321 Summerlin Rd, Fort Myers at 8 AM. This is the closest Publix to the causeway. They will stop at the ribbon cutting ceremony on the way back from Captiva.
This is a great opportunity for the cycling community to say THANKS to the many people who made this project possible, so plan to come if you're in town.
