The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is designing improvements for the intersection of Six Mile Cypress Parkway/Gladiolus Drive (SR 865) and US 41 in Lee County. The primary purpose of this project is to improve the capacity and safety at the intersection. The project will add an additional westbound through lane on Six Mile Cypress Parkway, increase capacity of the eastbound turn lanes, and improve the pedestrian crossings at the intersection. As part of these improvements, the closure of the eastbound left turn entrance for the Parker Promenade shopping plaza west of the intersection is being considered.
There is a Public Hearing scheduled for 5:00 p.m., August 17, 2017 at Florida Southwestern State College, 8099 College Parkway, Nursing Building AA, Room 177, Fort Myers, FL 33919 to discuss these proposed improvements.
