Keep the Detour


I want to know why the town of Ft Myers Beach won’t keep the current detour to get off island during construction as a way for people to get to Times Square? I have been saying for years…it is NOT bridge traffic but Times Square traffic that causes significant backup. I have told friends that the town ought to take Times Square traffic off Estero at Crescent St to help alleviate backups at the entrance to Times Square. Or how about a much longer center turning lane at the intersection that can accommodate 6-8 vehicles wanting to turn into Times Square?

Just some thoughts.

Thanks for the nice job you & staff do with the Sand Paper.
