The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), District One, is preparing the design of improvements along San Carlos Boulevard (SR 865) from north of Crescent Street to north of Hurricane Bay Bridge in Lee County.  

An Operational Analysis Study for this project was completed December 2018. The final study documents can be found under the Documents and Publications section.

Several alternatives were presented at a Public Meeting held February 27, 2018 at the Chapel by the Sea Presbyterian Church, 100 Chapel Street, Fort Myers Beach, Florida 33931. The design is proceeding consistent with recommended alternatives Beach Alternative 1 and Island Alternative 2 from the December 2018 Operational Analysis Report.
