FDOT Planning to Widen the South Corridor on I-75

Feb. 20, 2023
FDOT wants to hear from the public on this proposal

Some construction work could be coming to Fort Meyers, Florida, as the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) looks to improve the south corridor on I-75. 

The main goal is to widen lanes on I-75, and the agency is looking for the public's input.

The area FDOT is looking at would stretch for 42 miles down I-75, going from North Fort Myers at Bayshore Road SR-78  to Collier Boulevard SR 951.

FDOT says the widening project would help lessen traffic congestion on I-75.

Currently, FDOT is conducting a feasibility study to analyze the existing traffic needs, and the future traffic needs on I-75.

Aside from widening I-75, FDOt is also looking at modifying interchanges.

FDOT estimates this study should be completed by summer this year, and is giving the public an opportunity to speak out on Thursday, and give their ideas about the I-75 project proposal.

The public meeting starts at 5:00 p.m. at the North Collier Regional Park.
