Public information workshop scheduled for Burnt Store Road widening from Pine Island Road to Kismet Parkway

By Staff | Feb 23, 2011

The Lee County Department of Transportation will hold a public information workshop for the Burnt Store Road Widening project from 5-7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 24, at the German American Social Club, 2101 SW Pine Island Road
LC DOT is inviting the public to view plans for the widening of Burnt Store Road from Pine Island Road north to Kismet Parkway anytime between the hours of 5 – 7 p.m. Representatives from Lee County will be available to discuss the project and answer questions. The meeting will be conducted in an “open house” format; a video presentation explaining the project and the design will play continuously throughout the workshop.
LC DOT is designing the widening of Burnt Store Road from Pine Island Road north to Kismet Parkway. This design has two phases – a widening to four lanes and an ultimate future concept to six lanes with a two-lane frontage road. Currently, construction to four lanes for the segment of Burnt Store Road from Pine Island Road to Tropicana Parkway is funded in late 2014. Existing Burnt Store Road from Pine Island Road to Kismet Parkway is typically a two-lane undivided rural roadway which consists of one 10-foot travel lane in each direction. Currently, no bicycle or pedestrian facilities exist along the roadway. Burnt Store Road is a designated evacuation route.
The public is encouraged to attend this workshop and view the design plans. Anyone needing special accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 should contact Kaye Molnar at kmolnar@cella.cc or phone 239-337-1071.
