‚Äč Burnt Store Road Widening Project


Bridge Construction Begins


The Lee County Department of Transportation (LC DOT) and its contractor, Wright Construction Group, began construction this Summer to widen the middle segment of Burnt Store Road from Diplomat Parkway to south of Tropicana Parkway to four lanes. The expected completion date is Fall 2019.


This week construction begins on the new northbound bridge over the Hermosa Canal. Noise should be expected from this work and is unavoidable. This work is expected to be complete in 6 weeks.
