Lehigh Acres Welcome Sign To Be Evaluated By Engineers
Like most things come to age, so it is with the so-called wooden nickel that has become Lehigh Acres bad penny, the welcome sign to Lehigh at the intersection of Lee Boulevard and Homestead Road.
The giant round sign is in a major state of weathering and rusting. A structural engineer will begin to inspect it and report its recommendations to the Lehigh Acres Community Council.
The report will be presented at the next Community Council meeting on Sept. 15. The council meets on the third Monday night at the Community Meeting Room at the Lee County Sheriff’s East Side substation at 1301 Homestead Road. Click here to see other photos
