I just read your article on the 2017 traffic on Fort Myers Beach (“The Wait, Island Sand Paper April 7, 2017). My wife and I have been vacationing on the beach for over 30 years. We can remember when the road out to the island was two lanes. I commented this year, (we were vacationing this year from Feb. 12th to Mar. 20th) that the traffic seemed to move faster than other years. Just wanted you to know that we concur that it was faster, but did people stay away this year for one reason or another?
Anyway just my two cents.
