Estero Boulevard Improvements


Chapel Street – Lovers Lane

Beginning Monday night, Feb. 6, crews will start shifting traffic to the outside lanes of Estero Boulevard to begin construction in the center turn lane from north of Chapel Street to south of Lovers Lane. During this work, a barrier wall or construction barrels will be necessary on both sides of the center lane due to a 1 to 1 ½ -foot difference in elevation between travel lanes and the work zone.

Vehicles, pedestrians and bicyclists will be able to cross Estero Boulevard (from north of Chapel Street to south of Lovers Lane) at the following locations.

-Fort Myers Beach Town Hall

-Tropical Shores Way

-School Street

-Bay Road

This project replaces or relocates underground utilities, and builds new roadway and bicycle and pedestrian facilities along the entire length of Estero Boulevard. Improvements include sidewalks on both sides of the road, trolley stops and drainage improvements.  Sanitary sewer force main and water mains are also being replaced. Utility crews are relocating FPL power poles and facilities and services such as telephone and cable. TECO is adding a gas main along Estero Boulevard.
