FORT MYERS Southbound lanes on Six Mile Cypress Parkway are shifted to the west onto the newly constructed southbound roadway. Two southbound lanes are open to traffic. One northbound lane will remain open while crews continue paving the remaining northbound roadway. Motorists entering the road from the west side streets are advised to use extra caution as all stop signs and stop bars will have been moved west. With this traffic configuration, southbound traffic will be traveling in close proximity to the west side. The roadway is expected to be in its final configuration by Thanksgiving.
On Tuesday, Oct. 2, during the nighttime/overnight hours from 6 p.m. to 5 a.m., crews are scheduled to pave the southbound lanes of Six Mile Cypress Parkway immediately north of Daniels Parkway. One southbound will remain open at all times during the paving.
Motorists are asked to use caution while driving through the construction zone and be aware of construction vehicles during the paving operation. This work is part of Lee County's Six Mile Cypress Widening Project and is subject to change due to inclement weather or unforeseen conditions.
Lee County is widening the two-lane section of Six Mile Cypress Parkway to a four-lane divided highway. This work includes the installation of a signalized intersection at Penzance Boulevard and the addition of a paved path along the west side of the roadway from Heritage Palms to Daniels Parkway. Southbound Six Mile Cypress Parkway traffic is currently shifted to the east just south of Heritage Palms Boulevard.
