Portion of Parkdale Road Closed
A portion of Parkdale Boulevard in Lehigh Acres is closed to thru traffic due to the failure of a culvert. A culvert is a drain or a pipe that allows water to flow under a road, generally to connect to flowing canals.
The closed portion of Parkdale Boulevard is one mile east of State Route 82 and 2000 feet west of Homestead Road.
Lee County and East County Water Control District are working on the details of the culvert replacement project and can anticipate the culvert repair to be completed by September 7, 2013.
The road will be closed until repairs to the culvert have been completed. Once repairs are complete, Lee County Department of Transportation will begin repairs to Parkdale Boulevard.
For questions regarding repairs to the culvert, please contact ECWCD 239-410-2855. For road repair questions, please contact Patty DiPiero at 239-533-8534.
