Some traffic changes could come to Lee County

May 2, 2006

Lee County-- Steady growth may cause Lee County to spend millions of dollars on traffic changes.

Tuesday night, commissioners heard results of a traffic study that spells out a 4-phase plan over the next 20 years. Proposed changes include additional turn lanes at the intersection of Robert B. Lee Drive and US 19 and turn lanes and a traffic light at the intersection of Robert B. Lee and Lover's Lane Road.

Traffic consultants say the improvements are needed because growing population leads to more traffic.

"It provides relief for the existing residents as well as those who will be new to the area with the ongoing development," says Dan Dobry of URS Corporation.

The plan would also widen Robert B. Lee and Lover's Lane in the future. The four phases would cost 4 to 5 million dollars over the next 20 years. The first phase would cost about $705,000.
