Jacobs Engineering (Jacobs) is to conduct a lighting study to determine the lighting requirements for Lake Trafford Road from Ann Olesky Park to SR 29 (4.8 miles) and Carson Road from Immokalee Drive to Lake Trafford Road (.5 miles).
The study shall compare roadway lighting versus pedestrian lighting to identify the improvements needed to best satisfy the needs of the community. The project area is marked in blue on above map. The usage of Lee County Electric Cooperative leased equipment will be evaluated as part of the scope of work.
Jacobs provided a final Proposal in the amount of $249,930 for the design of construction plans for the corridors. On April 19, 2023 the Immokalee CRA approved cost sharing with the Immokalee MSTU to avoid delays due to funding and authorized Staff to move forward utilizing Jacobs on the lighting design.
A Purchase Order was processed on April 28, 2023 and a Notice to Proceed was issued on May 1, 2023. The work schedule shall not exceed 365 calendar days. The Kick-Off Meeting was on May 18, 2023. Jacobs has initiated traffic counts and crash data research from Collier County’s Transportation Services Division for the Lake Trafford Lighting Study and Design plans, and collecting data for survey work. Once the topographic survey for the project is completed, Jacobs will proceed with the Lighting Design Analysis Report (LDAR) followed by the design plan production. The project completion is approximately twenty percent (20%); and the LDAR is due at the end of October 2023.
This project will be completed in phases to coordinate with the Transportation Division’s project consisting of bike lanes and drainage improvements on both sides of Lake Trafford Road from Little League Road to Laurel Street, and sidewalks on the south side of the roadway from Carson Road to Krystal Lane and from North 18th Street to Laurel Street.
