The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), District One, is designing improvements to State Road (SR) 739 in Lee County. This project is intended to improve safety, enhance traffic flow, and reduce crashes by constructing a continuous raised median, with bi-directional and full median openings, from the Caloosahatchee River to north of SR 78. Proposed improvements also consist of milling and resurfacing of the roadway. Two pedestrian hybrid beacons will be provided south of Pondella Road and at Mariana Avenue. Additional improvements include upgrading the traffic signal at Pondella Road; providing upgrades in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA); and lighting, signing and pavement markings, and drainage improvements.
