Lee County began construction on Phase I of the Corkscrew Road Widening Project in April 2021. Phase I work includes widening Corkscrew Road to six lanes from Ben Hill Griffin Parkway to Fire House Lane, and to four lanes from Fire House Lane to Bella Terra Boulevard. The project includes adding on-road bike lanes, some sidewalk, and new drainage. A wildlife crossing will be incorporated with the construction of a new bridge just west of Bella Terra Boulevard. There are many private and public utilities that have had to be relocated as a part of this project as well. Once the project is completed, the Village of Estero will be installing shared use paths, lighting, and landscaping.
Estimated completion of Phase I construction is early 2024.
