Project Description

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District One is proposing safety improvements on State Road (SR) 867 (McGregor Boulevard) from Cypress Lake Drive to Edinburgh Drive in Fort Myers. The project proposes replacing the two-way, left turn lane with a raised grass median along the project corridor to enhance safety.

Current conditions: Within the study area, SR 867 is a four-lane roadway with a center, two-way left turn lane. The posted speed of 45 miles per hour. There are sidewalks on both sides of the roadway. There are no bike lanes.

Design conditions: The design proposes removing the center turn lane and adding a raised median.

  • The raised median will close access for left or right turns in three areas along the corridor: just north of Cypress Lake Drive to north of Town and River Drive; north of South Landings Drive to south of College Parkway; and north of College Parkway to just south of Edinburgh Drive.
  • Left turn lanes will remain at Cypress Lake Drive, South Landings Drive, College Parkway, and Edinburgh Drive.
