DOT advises motorists about double home games during Spring Training

February 23, 2018
Cape Coral Daily Breeze

Spring Training is back and Lee County's Traffic Operations Center reminds motorists to be prepared for increased traffic near the stadiums at game time, especially when the Minnesota Twins and the Boston Red Sox take to their respective fields at the same time on the same day.

The operations center has special programming for traffic-signal timing to help keep vehicles moving. The county's traffic specialists also coordinate with the Lee County Sheriff's Office and the baseball teams. But motorists who can avoid the Daniels Parkway corridor at the start and conclusion of two simultaneous games should do so.

Those games start at 1:05 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 25 and Wednesday, Feb 28

The peak traffic time for games starting at 1:05 p.m. is between the hours of 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m., and then again between 3:45 and 4:30 p.m. Lee County Sheriff's Office advises these are times motorists should avoid the Daniels Parkway corridor.

Other game dates when both teams are playing on the same day, but at different times include Thursday, Feb. 22 Red Sox play at 1:05 p.m. and Twins play at 6:05 p.m.; Tuesday, Feb. 27 Red Sox play at 1:05 p.m. and Twins play at 6:05 p.m.; and Friday, March 16 Twins play at 1:05 p.m. and Red Sox play at 6:05 p.m.

The Boston Red Sox train at JetBlue Park, 11500 Fenway South Drive, Fort Myers, and the Minnesota Twins train about six miles away at the CenturyLink Sports Complex, 14100 Ben C. Pratt/Six Mile Cypress Parkway, Fort Myers.
