Beginning Monday, Aug. 13, travel lanes will be reduced to one lane in each direction on S.R. 82 from Ortiz Avenue to Forum Boulevard in Fort Myers while crews pave the roadway. During morning and evening rush hours, two travel lanes in each direction are expected to be open to traffic. One travel lane in each direction will remain open at all times. Heavy showers during late afternoon and evening hours have prohibited nighttime paving and more afternoon/evening rain showers are predicted daily in the weather forecast. Paving is expected to be complete in September.
Motorists are asked to use caution and be aware of construction vehicles during the daytime paving operation. This work is part of the city of Fort Myers' S.R. 82 Widening Project and is subject to change due to inclement weather or unforeseen conditions.
