Nalle Grade Road to be closed for drainage improvements March 18 to March 20

By Staff | Mar 12, 2019

Nalle Grade Road in North Fort Myers will be closed between Welborn Road and Bowen Road, beginning at 6 a.m. Monday, March 18, through Wednesday, March 20, to allow a contractor to replace a culvert just west of Welborn Road.

The culvert replacement is part of a surface water management/restoration project underway by the Lee County Department of Natural Resources. The work, within the Nalle Grade Park, is intended to improve the Bayshore Creek system through water quality treatment and flood protection.

Detours will be posted on electronic message boards to route westbound traffic to Slater Road and eastbound traffic to Nalle Road. The roadway will be reopened once the pipe installation is complete.
