Mcgregor Boulevard is heading for some changes soon.

 

The work will be from 7am to 4pm Monday through Saturday.

The City of Fort Myers, in coordination with the Florida Department of Transportation, begins work this month to replace storm drainage on McGregor Boulevard from Colonial Boulevard to Poinciana Avenue. In addition to replacing the existing pipes, the project will resurface the roadway, replace existing sidewalk where disturbed by pipe replacement, replace some signage, and update crosswalks with new striping and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accommodations.  The final product will enhance the corridor by providing an upgraded drainage system and driving surface, but in general will not change the “look” of McGregor Boulevard as it is today.  The project is anticipated to be completed in fall 2018.

The City’s goal is to maintain two-way traffic on McGregor Boulevard when possible; however, even with two lanes open, motorists will experience periodic delays.  Commuters that use McGregor Boulevard and do not have a destination along the corridor should choose alternate routes during the project as delays could be substantial.  Many construction activities will require lane closures and flagging operations on McGregor Boulevard.  During some activities, vehicles will be detoured to side streets.  Motorists that must use McGregor Boulevard should plan extra travel time.  Pedestrians should also expect sidewalk detours.

The contractor will need to install storm drainage pipes, some up to 30 inches in diameter and five to six feet deep, in multiple locations across McGregor Boulevard.  Lane closures and flagging operations will be required on McGregor Boulevard during these pipe crossings.  The contractor will also need to cross some side streets with storm drainage pipe which will require residents to use alternate routes to reach their properties.  When crossing dead-end side streets, the contractor will maintain one lane for access.  Flaggers will be on-hand to assist residents.

Florida Still ranks up in the top 20 for investment properties.

Florida holds on: Four cities in the Sunshine State made the list, the most of any state, and all are in the top 10. There’s Jacksonville at no. 2, Orlando at no. 3, West Palm Beach at no. 5 and Tampa at no. 7. Winzer says that Florida’s continued strength is the biggest surprise of the list. (Last year seven Florida cities made the cut.)  Florida was the poster child for financial crisis devastation. As recently as 2015 seven markets in the state were undervalued by more than 20%. But builder constraint and job growth has boosted the value of existing homes.

Manny the mammoth starts to worry when his daughter Peaches announces her engagement. Still unlucky in love, Sid the sloth volunteers to plan the couple’s wedding. To Manny’s dismay, nothing can stop the upcoming nuptials, except maybe the end of the world.

Now, the entire herd must leave home to explore new lands and save itself from Scrat’s cosmic blunder.

The Outdoor Family Movie Night series concludes on March 10 with How To Train Your Dragon 2. Attendance is free, but a suggested $10 family donation helps the Alliance continue offering affordable family programming.  Riverside Realty Group and Staging Matters our proud to be a sponsor of Family Movie Night
