Residents of Lee County had expressed concern regarding Buckingham Roads’ lack of safety, a community meeting will be held Thursday evening to discuss improvements.

Drivers are troubled by the poorly lit, two-lane road that connects Lehigh Acres and Fort Myers. Traffic congestion has also made it a nightmare to navigate.

Lee County Leaders have announced an interest in creating a safer road for motorists to travel on. The meeting will discuss options on how the county can improve traffic flow on Buckingham Road.

Last year, a major crash shut down the road at the intersection of Buckingham and Cemetery Road.

The Thursday community meeting will be open to the public at 5:30 p.m., at the Buckingham Community Center in Fort Myers.
