The city of Fort Myers, in conjunction with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) invites the community to a public information meeting about a Flexible Pavement Reconstruction (asphalt) project on McGregor Boulevard (CR 867) from Colonial Boulevard to Poinciana Avenue in Lee County.

This informal public information meeting will be held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 3, at the Edison Banquet Center located at 3583 McGregor Blvd., in Fort Myers. The city of Fort Myers and FDOT project staff will be available during the meeting to discuss the proposed improvements and answer questions. No formal presentation will occur.

Improvements along this two-mile stretch of McGregor Boulevard include repaving and restriping the roadway, removal and replacement of mailboxes, four landscape median islands between Walden Drive and Vesper Drive, Sunbury Drive and Wales Drive, and Grave Avenue and Moreno Avenue, removal and replacement of storm sewer and Royal Palm trees, landscaping, reconstruction of existing sidewalks, concrete driveways, and replacement of brick pavers at various crosswalks.

FDOT will be providing funding for this Local Agency Program project, and the city of Fort Myers will be performing the proposed improvements. The estimated project cost is $6 million. Funds are currently programmed in Fiscal Year 2015-2016, and the City of Fort Myers will determine the start date for this project.
