Burnt Store Road Widening Project

Burnt Store Road from Diplomat Parkway to Van Buren Parkway: Construction Project: This project consists of the initial widening of Burnt Store Road to four lanes (ultimately the future design is for six lanes with a two-lane frontage road). The project also includes installation of conduits under the road for the City of Cape Coral.

 

The speed limit is reduced to 45 miles per hour. Motorists should use caution as construction vehicles enter and exit the roadway.

 

Diplomat Parkway at the intersection of Burnt Store Road: Motorists should expect the existing intersection to close on Friday, January 13 weather permitting. Northbound and southbound Burnt Store Road motorists must use the new connecting ramp at NW 12th Terrace to access Diplomat Parkway. Westbound Diplomat Parkway motorists must also use this ramp to access Burnt Store Road. Motorists should follow detour signs and use extreme caution while driving in this area.

 

Westbound Diplomat Parkway traffic will shift south and share the eastbound travel lanes before heading south on the new ramp to Burnt Store Road. Eastbound traffic will use eastbound lanes.
