Detour planned for motorists on North River Road
A short segment of North River Road between the S.R. 31 Bridge and the Alva Bridge will have overnight closures in both directions for two weeks beginning Monday, April 18. Motorists traveling east-west between the bridges in North Fort Myers and Alva will be detoured south along S.R. 80. Work will not happen on weekends.
Lee County Department of Transportation is asking motorists to be aware of the 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. detour and closure, which is due to a Florida Power & Light project to install new power line poles to enhance reliable service to its customers in the area. PIKE Electric is performing the work and managing the closure for FPL.
The specific dates of the overnight road closure are April 18 through 21 and April 25 through 28. The specific location of the closure is 4 miles east of the S.R. 31 intersection with North River Road in North Fort Myers and 4.25 miles west of the road’s intersection with Broadway in Alva.
Motorists and residents with questions can contact FPL at 239-947-7375 or PIKE Electric’s project foreman at 239-478-7342.
