EDISON PARADE RELATED
The 15-20-70-100 and 140
routes will be on detour by 3:00pm on February 15th, 2020. The
Downtown River District Trolleys will stay on route until 1st Street is closed. Routes
590-595 will also be detoured. Detour information can be viewed on our website. We
will resume servicing 1st street once it is reopened but the parade
barricades usually stay in place through our service time, prohibiting us from
resuming normal route service in mentioned areas. Even after the parade is
over, several routes may be delayed due to parade car traffic. Law enforcement
will control intersections to disperse traffic and move parade units out of
Downtown. We will run service through all our scheduled trips with some delays
due to traffic.
Relocating Bus Stop #1753 effective Friday, February 14th. See map for details. This change will affect the Blue Trolley Line.
Removing Bus Stop #2276 on Second Street and Fowler Street effective Friday, February 14. This change will affect the Blue Trolley Line.
Due to the continuing construction project and the placement of cement barriers blocking access from the bus stop to the roadway, we will close two bus stops northbound on US 41, (Cleveland Ave.) in the active construction zone. The stops being closed temporarily are Cleveland and Collier and Cleveland and Hill, both north bound.
Route 515 and Route 110
Route 515 and route 110 will likely
continue to experience delays due to construction and traffic along Homestead
Rd. The construction project extends from Delaware Rd to Sunrise Blvd on
Homestead Rd. Part of the project also affects Leeland Heights Blvd W until Lee
Blvd.The Department of Transportation (DOT) will be working on one side of the
road for the next several weeks and the other side for several following weeks.
Construction is scheduled to continue through April. The typical seasonal
traffic is compounding the traffic issue and while rerouting opportunities are being
explored, our options are limited in this particular corridor. Please continue
to expect delays in service. As updates become available, we will post new
alerts to the website, Facebook page and Transit app.
Construction on US 41, which
affects the route 140, began in December 2018 on the west side of US 41 from
Winkler Avenue to Carrell Road. The contractor is nearing completion of this
phase and will next move to the east side of US 41/Cleveland Avenue near the
end of the year to begin work on Phase 2. Construction includes the relocation
and installation of new utilities, medians, drainage structures, pedestrian
signals, upgrading signals and lighting, and resurfacing existing roadway.
Motorists should continue to expect intermittent northbound and southbound lane
closures and detours on US 41. The expected project completion date is the
end of spring 2022.
Significant delays expected due to ongoing construction on Estero Blvd. Please exercise caution when boarding and alighting the transit vehicles in construction zones. Some stops may not be accessible while crews are working.
Our trolleys are
in full swing and are a great way to travel around downtown Fort Myers. Just
listen for the trolley bells and wave a trolley down anywhere on First Street
between Lee and Monroe street. Outside of First Street, catch a trolley at any
of the designated stops. Click for trolley times and map.
