A major Collier County road project is getting the green light to help you get around faster and safer.

Airport-Pulling Road from Immokalee Road to Vanderbilt Beach Road will be widened to three lanes, with improvements for pedestrian and bike safety.

The county said work on the road is long overdue, and the growing population means more traffic and more crashes.

The price tag is around $6.4 million.

Commissioners couldn’t give a timeline as to when the work is slated to begin.
