Lee County has contracted with Johnson Engineering to prepare plans to widen Corkscrew Road from Ben Hill Griffin Parkway to Alico Road, a distance of 4.4 miles. Corkscrew Road is a two-lane east-west arterial. The Lee County Metropolitan Planning Organization’s Long Range Transportation Plan has identified the widening of Corkscrew Road from Ben Hill Griffin Parkway to Alico Road from two to four lanes as a priority. The design of the 4-lane facility will consist of two phases, Ben Hill Griffin Boulevard to Bella Terra Boulevard and Bella Terra Boulevard to Alico Road.
Public involvement is a very important part of the Corkscrew Road Design Project because the success of any transportation action depends on a successful public outreach effort. Lee County will provide project information in ways that are informative, easy to understand and use, and easily accessible. Lee County will share information on this website, distribute project newsletters and fact sheets, make presentations to small groups, organizations, and local governments. Public meetings will be held.
