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.
Due to the continuing construction project and the placement of cement barriers blocking access from the bus stop to the roadway, the bus stop #1608 on
Cleveland and Hill northbound on US 41 will remain closed, (Cleveland Ave.) in the active construction zone.
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.
