Lee County MPO

November 17, 2023 @ 9:00 am EST

The Lee County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) will hold a public hearing on November 17, 2023, at 9:00 a.m., at the Lee County Administration East Building located at 2201 Second Street in Room 118, to consider amendments to the 2045 Long Range Plan (LRTP) that include the following revisions to match recent funding commitments:

  • Adjust the Metro Parkway funding to match the Tentative Work Program
  • Revise the limits of the SR 78 W. of Santa Barbara to 24th Avenue project to Burnt Store Road to 24th Avenue to address the local funding that is being used for the Project Development & Environment study within those limits. Also, adjust the funding to match what has been budgeted for the project (now funded in FY 2025).
  • Revise the Burnt Store Road from Van Buren to the Charlotte County line design phase to now show this funded with the federal appropriation that was awarded to the County (now funded in FY 2024).
  • Change the SR 31 from SR 80 to SR 78 project to adjust the phasing to account for the Right-of-Way and Construction funding that is now included in the work program over the next five years (Construction is funded in FY 2029).
  • Revise the US 41 and Bonita Beach Road intersection project to include the design phase funded with federal and local funds to match recent changes (now funded in FY 2026).
  • Add in the widening of I-75 to eight lanes from the Collier County line to Corkscrew Road in the 2024 to 2027 time frame to match the Moving Florida Forward project. Also revise the I-75 managed lanes project limits currently shown in the Plan to match the typical section that has been shown in the recently completed I-75 South Corridor Master Plan.

The public hearing will also include amendments to the Transportation Improvement Program.  The current FY 2024 through FY 2028 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is being amended to adjust the funding for the Metro Parkway widening project from Daniels Parkway to Winkler Avenue and to add the PD&E and PE phases for the I-75 Moving Florida Forward widening project.

The changes to the projects are included in the LRTP tables in underline and strike through format, the Metro Parkway adjusted project cost information is included on the TIP page, and the Districtwide Lee and Collier I-75 widening project TIP page is also available at the following link:  LRTP and TIP Amendments  Hard copies of the document are available by contacting the MPO offices at 239-244-2220.
