The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) contractor, Ajax Paving Industries of Florida began work to widen SR 82 from Gator Slough Lane to SR 29 at the end of 2019. This project will widen the roadway from a two-lane undivided roadway to a four-lane divided roadway, allowing for a future six-lane roadway.
The project also includes a roundabout. Improvements will be made to a stretch of 3.2 miles of roadway. The community outreach manager is Lisa Macias. The Project Manager is Dennis Day.
Roundabout added features:
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), District One, is designing improvements to SR 29 in Collier County. The entire corridor limits extend approximately 16 miles along SR 29 from Oil Well Road to south of SR 82. The corridor has been divided into five segments which will accelerate the design process. The proposed roadway improvement consists of increasing capacity on SR 29 by widening the existing two-lane undivided segment of SR 29 to four lanes, as well as providing a bypass around downtown Immokalee.
This project begins at New Market Road and ends at SR 82. On the south end it will connect to the new Immokalee bypass and on the north end it will connect to the SR 82 roundabout. The final roadway will consist of two 12-foot travel lanes in each direction with 4-foot paved inside shoulders, 10-foot (5-foot paved) outside shoulders, and a 30-foot grass median.
There will be a public meeting during the design phase. Meetings will be held with elected and appointed public officials, other representatives of public agencies, and public/special interest groups to discuss the progress of the design.
Improvements will be made to approximately 3 miles, along SR 29 from New Market Road/Westclox Road to SR 82. The design consultant is Faller, Davis and Associates, Inc. The Consultant Project Manager is Logan Barile, P.E. The FDOT Project Manager is Chris Speese.
