Here’s some important news for those of you who own property fronting on Homestead Road. The Lee County Department of Transportation is widening Homestead Road to four lanes. The project will run for 2 ¼ miles, from south of Sunrise Boulevard to Alabama Road. The project will include on-road bike lanes and the addition of sidewalks on both sides of Homestead Road. Currently, right-of-way acquisition is underway. Construction for the project is funded for fiscal year 2015/2016. It is important to start planning now, as right-of-way acquisition will affect property owners along this segment of Homestead Road. A link to the right-of-way map can be found here so you can determine whether you may be affected.
