Mr. Vincent Miller, from the Lee County Department of Transportation, sent us an update on the two segments of Burnt Store Road that are scheduled for construction.
The two segments are the South end that connects to Pine Island Road and the segment North of Kismet Road to the city limit.
Here is his response to our email inquiry:
• How is the South Segment progressing and what are the timetables?
• The project is out for bid and bids will be open on September 30th. We anticipate construction commencing in December/January timeframe.
• How is the connector segment from the North Segment to the County Line progressing and what are the timetables?
• Currently, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is in the process of a Project Development and Environmental (PD&E) study that began about a year ago with approximately two years remaining. When the PD&E is complete by FDOT and adopted by the Lee County BOCC, then the design and construction will commence, once the project is prioritized and funding is identified.
