City of Fort Myers to Convert Downtown Intersections to All-Way Stop Signs

FM Dowtown Intersection Improvements

FORT MYERS, FL (Oct. 8, 2018) – Changes are coming to downtown Fort Myers intersections. In September, the Fort Myers City Council approved a plan to remove four downtown traffic signals and convert all downtown core intersections to four-way stops. 

Beginning next week, contractors for the City of Fort Myers will begin converting downtown intersections to all-way stop signs in the downtown area north of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, south of Edwards Drive, east of U.S. 41 and west of Fowler Street.

Traffic signals at the following intersections will be removed and replaced with four-way stop signs:

  • First Street at Lee Street
  • Second Street at Hendry Street
  • Second Street at Jackson Street
  • Second Street at Lee Street

Traffic signals will remain at intersections on Monroe Street. Pedestrian crossing signs will be added in locations on Lee Street and on Royal Palm Avenue.

In total, 25 downtown intersections will be part of the planned improvements to intersections throughout the downtown area. Click here for a map of the upcoming changes. Conversion of the intersections is expected to be complete by the end of 2018.
