Collier County Board of County Commissioners is looking to determine how bad traffic is along Immokalee Road between Livingston Road and Logan Boulevard and reviewing what can be done about it.

A traffic study survey is being conducted to get a better idea about how the county can best keep traffic from getting backed up on the roadway, especially during rush hour.

“Number one frustration would be traffic,” Brennan Fitzgerald said.

It takes longer to get places, and frustrations build behind the wheel.

“Are you kidding?” Jones Siciliano said. “Much worse, much, much this year for sure

“Naples is a beautiful place, and people want to move here,” Fitzgerald said.

Many in Collier County have issues on Immokalee Rd.

“We live on Immokalee, and that’s really bad,” Siciliano said.

Collier County Sheriff’s Office admitted it after posting a meme on its Facebook page saying, “We get it, friends. We drive there too. Be patient. Stay focused and obey traffic laws.”

The county says, if nothing is done to improve Immokalee Rd by 2040, it will be even worse. That’s why commissioners want community input.
