New Roundabout Construction
Has Started on Beth Stacey
Beth Stacey and Business Way: Lee County is constructing a roundabout at Beth Stacey and Business Way in Lehigh Acres. There will be periodic lane closures during off peak times and flaggers will be present to control traffic through the work area. During some construction operations, detours will be posted to direct traffic around the intersection. Expected completion is November, 2014.
During the first phase of construction, Business Way will be closed at Beth Stacey Boulevard.
The traffic detour will be as follows: Detour from Beth Stacey north to Homestead Road, then east (right) to Plaza Drive, and then from Business Way to Plaza Drive, then west (left) to Homestead Road.
Access to businesses on Business Way will be maintained. Additional signs will be posted to direct voters to the polling place for the election on Tuesday, June 24.
Lee County Department of Transportation anticipates the first phase of construction will take 30 days. The intersection will be reopened as soon as the roadway is reconstructed to allow safe turning movements to and from Business Way.
DOT asks that drivers proceed with caution and be aware of workers and equipment on the roadway.
