Lee County Metropolitan Planning Organization Complete Streets Initiative Progress Update: April 8, 2016

Crews have completed sodding along Iris Road and Constitution Circle as the Lee County Metropolitan Planning Organization Complete Streets Initiative moves forward.

construction update 4-8-16 aEarlier this year, crews constructed five-foot, concrete sidewalks along the east side of Iris Road and Constitution Circle and are now installing new sod in areas disturbed by the construction. This section joins the more than three miles of newly-installed sidewalks in the San Carlos Park community. The inclusion of sidewalks on both sides of the road greatly improves safety and provides a safe area for residents to walk and jog.

construction update 4-8-16 bWork also continues along Colonial Boulevard.

Along the north side of Colonial Boulevard, crews continue to lay the foundation for a ten-foot, shared-use path. When complete, the asphalt route will span 1.88 miles between Veronica Shoemaker Boulevard and Winkler Avenue. Crews are also installing new bases for the existing light fixtures along the route, making evening travel safer for bikers and pedestrians.
