AMENDED ROADWATCH UPDATE

1. Road Work/Maintenance/Improvement

Corkscrew Road Widening Project – Phase I Construction Project: The project widens Corkscrew Road to six lanes from Ben Hill Griffin Parkway to Fire House Lane, and to four lanes from Fire House Lane to Bella Terra Boulevard. The project includes adding on-road bike lanes, some sidewalk, installing new drainage, and constructing a wildlife crossing approximately 1000 feet west of the entrance to Cypress Shadows Boulevard. This crossing will coincide with a regional flow-way that crosses Corkscrew Road at that location. The Village of Estero will be installing shared use paths, lighting, and landscaping as phasing allows. Drivers, pedestrians, and bicyclists are urged to use extra caution when traveling through the work zone. Please be aware of shifts in travel lanes and bike lanes, sidewalk detours, miscellaneous turn lane closures, and uneven pavement throughout the project.

Please use caution and drive with courtesy and patience throughout the project area. Residents are entering and exiting communities on both sides of Corkscrew Road.

FOR EVERYONE’S SAFETY, PLEASE STAY OUT OF THE ACTIVE WORK ZONE.

• New travel lanes for westbound traffic are scheduled to be paved from east of Wildcat Run to west of The Preserve on Thursday, February 8, 2024 and Friday, February 9, 2024.

• Later in February, westbound traffic will be shifted to the north side of the road to allow for work in the median. This will open turn lanes at most of the intersections. Some intersections may have intermittent closures to finalize work.

• Crews are installing signage, guardrail and fencing throughout the project.

• The contractor continues to complete concrete work including curb and gravity wall. Motorists should expect concrete trucks entering and exiting the roadway.

• Construction of the wildlife crossing/bridge structure is complete and will be painted in the coming weeks.

• Crews will be sodding the median and shoulders over the next week beginning near The Preserve and working their way west. Motorists should be aware of construction equipment and vehicles operating close to the roadway.

• Left turn lanes from Corkscrew Road are unavailable into Wild Blue Boulevard, Cypress Shadows Boulevard (The Preserve at Corkscrew), Midnight Blue Boulevard, and Bella Terra Boulevard. Left turns are still permitted, however they will be made from the travel lane. Where possible, barrels and other devices have been shifted to allow for as much room as possible for vehicles.

• The sidewalk on the south side of the road from Ben Hill Griffin Parkway to Stoneybrook Golf Drive has been opened to pedestrians. Please be aware that some areas are a temporary surface. The Village of Estero is constructing the shared use path.

The work activities above are scheduled to occur, however unforeseen underground conditions and weather may affect this schedule.

WORK PERFORMED BY OTHERS:

• GL Homes is actively working in the RiverCreek Community site across from Wild Blue Boulevard. Motorists should expect delays and use caution as construction vehicles enter/exit the roadway.

Sanibel Causeway Emergency Restoration: Crews have moved traffic to the permanent lanes on the Sanibel Causeway. The causeway islands surrounding the temporary roadway are an active work zone and are currently closed for public access, including from the water.

• Beginning Monday, February 12, 2024, motorists traveling eastbound from Sanibel should expect one lane of travel to continue from the toll plaza to Port Comfort Road to allow the contractor to perform shoulder work. Significant traffic delays are not expected during this operation. The lane closure is expected to last for approximately 90 days while crews work to install underground devices to reinforce the shoreline. During this work, beach access from McGregor Boulevard will be unavailable.

• Crews continue earthwork and debris removal along the causeway islands. Please expect construction equipment periodically entering/leaving the travel lanes when necessary. The contractor is limiting this interruption during peak hours.

• The westbound merge location is now west of the toll plaza. Motorists are urged to use caution and obey the 20 MPH speed limit. Construction vehicles and equipment continue to enter/exit the staging area near this location.

Many oversized vehicles are crossing the causeway to assist with recovery efforts on the island. Please be patient as travel may be slower than usual. Bicyclists are encouraged to utilize another mode of transportation to travel the causeway and pedestrians are not permitted on the Sanibel Causeway.

MOTORISTS ARE REMINDED TO OBEY THE POSTED SPEED LIMIT OF 20 MPH. Please use caution and watch for workers and construction vehicles entering and leaving the roadway.
