The Florida Department of Transportation is looking for ways to address congestion issues and the projected increase in traffic at the intersection of U.S. 41 and Bonita Beach Road in Bonita Springs. The proposals, estimated to cost about $40 million, are in the project development and environment study phase.
According to FDOT’s existing levels of service, the majority of the intersection has a grade “F” during midday and evening peak periods, with some intersection queues reaching more than 1,100 feet. If the intersection remains as is, the queues of the intersection will be significantly longer by 2050 with the southern part of the intersection anticipated to reach a more than 2,400-foot queue during peak traffic.
There are two build alternatives being considered for this intersection—an enhanced traffic signal and a partial displaced left turn.
