|5.5 miles of shared use path on Pine Island Road from Stringfellow Road to Veterans Memorial Parkway
|Start of Current Phase:
February 2024 Update - FDOT has resumed work on the project.
Initial steps involve close coordination with the Pine Island Road Causeway and Bridge Permanent Repair project and Lee County. We anticipate a Corridor Feasibility Public Workshop in spring 2024. More information will be posted on this page as it becomes available.
Within the study limits, Pine Island Road has no dedicated bicycle facilities and intermittent unconnected pedestrian facilities. This project will evaluate the feasibility of connecting the existing trail/multi-use path network and provide a connection between Pine Island, Matlacha, and Cape Coral. Alignments on both the north and south sides of the roadway will be evaluated.
In addition, this project will evaluate potential “Complete Streets” elements to be incorporated into the corridor to help provide a safe and viable travel option for both motorized and non-motorized commuters and recreational users of Pine Island Road.
FDOT has formed a Project Advisory Group (PAG) that consists of agencies and stakeholders. FDOT will meet with the PAG throughout the study. These meetings will assist the project team with identifying issues, opportunities, and potential transportation solutions for the corridor. For information regarding these meetings, please see the documents below.
