We did get confirmation from the contractor that they are still on track for “substantial completion of the Estero Boulevard project by the end of 2021.” Here’s your weekly Estero Boulevard road construction update so you can plan your travel accordingly.

Contractors for the Town of Fort Myers Beach and Lee County are installing new water main, sanitary sewer force main, storm drainage, and sidewalk and rebuilding roadway on Estero Boulevard from Strandview Avenue/Publix to the south end of the island.

Two travel lanes are expected to remain open the majority of the project; however, motorists may experience daytime or nighttime one-lane traffic on Estero Boulevard. Flaggers will alternate traffic frequently, but motorists should expect delays. Motorists may also experience momentary delays while crews move materials for the construction activities. Crews are expected to work Monday through Friday and some Saturdays.
