Improvements Slated for Area Around Matlacha Bridge

Fort Myers, FL, March 25, 2014 - Lee County will boost public safety around the Matlacha Bridge with several upcoming improvements.

"No Parking" signs will be posted on the bridge so that emergency vehicles will be able to navigate around traffic, should the need arise.

Since the opening of the new drawbridge in 2013, anglers and others have parked in the widened space at the bridge's south-side base, hampering potential emergency efforts and also eliminating a pull-off area for motorists who breakdown. A designated area on the bridge's west end will be reserved for bridge tender parking only.

Anglers in need of parking are welcome at Matlacha Park, just west of the bridge. Parking there is free for vehicles without trailers; park hours are 7 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. daily. Lee County Parks & Recreation also owns a small, unimproved site at the bridge's southwest point.

Other plans in the works for Matlacha include Department of Transportation-constructed pedestrian crosswalks with flashing lights that will be push-button activated. This will help alert motorists to areas at which walkers, shoppers and anglers frequently cross. One location has been identified east of the bridge, and another is being considered west of the bridge; others may be added as needed. A needs assessment and preliminary design work will begin in late spring.
