PD&E Studies | FDOT District One State Road (SR) 31 PD&E

The Purpose:

The SR 31 PD&E Study will evaluate improvements to SR 31 from south of SR 80 (Palm Beach Boulevard) to north County Road (CR) 78 (North River Road). This Study is being conducted to determine what improvements can be implemented to accommodate the expected traffic demands of southwest Florida.

The Project:

Population levels in southwest Florida are projected to rise in the next few years. Employment and housing demands are also expected to grow and area traffic patterns will change. SR 31 serves as the primary north-south connection through a rural area of Lee County. The study will analyze the potential widening of SR 31, from SR 80 to north of CR 78, to a four-lane divided roadway, with the possible future expansion to six lanes. Widening or replacement of the Caloosahatchee River Bridge is also being considered. The study is also evaluating two options for the draw bridge: 1) the construction of an additional draw bridge with the ability to expand to the future six lanes, or 2) replacement of the existing mid-level bridge with a high level fixed-span bridge. In addition, intersection improvements will be identified and a median will be added. As always, the no-build alternative will remain an option throughout the study.

The Public:

Media Relations Group, LLC, serves as the main liaison between project team members and the community for this study and is leading all public involvement efforts for this project. MRG completed the Public Involvement Plan for this project and generated all meeting materials necessary. MRG has also created the website, SR31Lee County.com, and continues to receive comments and input from affected stakeholders in a variety of ways in order to ensure that every member of the community has an opportunity to voice their questions and concerns. A Public Kickoff Meeting, the first of many significant project milestones, was coordinated by MRG and all notification materials and other collaterals were prepared by MRG.
