Advisory on April 29 regarding the 6-laning of US 41 from Corkscrew Road
to San Carlos Boulevard.
two northbound lanes, from County Road to San Carlos Boulevard, will
shift to the recently constructed lanes on the east side of US 41.
County Road is next to the Estero Fire Rescue Station located
between Corkscrew Road and Broadway
southbound traffic will continue to use the two lanes currently in use.
While the median is under construction, drivers can make U-turns
and left turns only at Corkscrew Road, County Road, Broadway Avenue,
Vintage Parkway/Breckenridge Drive, Hickory Drive and San Carlos
are constructing lanes in the median in preparation for the fall 2012
traffic shift. At that
time, the two southbound travel lanes will use the new lanes in the
median while crews construct the new southbound lanes on the west side
of US 41.
Broadway Avenue East is expected to open to traffic by May 5.
