As of March 2019
Crews have made substantial progress on the project. The bridge has been constructed and significantly completed, most of the road on the south end of the project has been paved, and many areas have been resodded. The project completion date is still expected toward the end of the year.
The Lee County Department of Transportation (LC DOT) and their contractor, Wright Construction Group, has begun construction to widen Burnt Store Road from Diplomat Parkway to south of Tropicana Parkway to four lanes. The expected completion date is Spring 2020.
The project consists of three segments: North, Middle, and South. The North Segment was completed in January 2018, and Burnt Store Road from Van Buren Parkway to Diplomat Parkway was widened to a four-lane highway. The Middle Segment will cover Diplomat Parkway to south of Tropicana Parkway and the South Segment will be from south of Tropicana Parkway to Pine Island Road.
