The Florida Department of Transportation has a plan to improve Pine Island Road in Cape Coral.

FDOT’s plan is to reduce congestion and enhance crosswalk safety for pedestrians.

FDOT reports that from 2015 to 2019, 19 people were killed in vehicle crashes while driving on the road, provoking a change to improve safety.

FDOT representatives presented their road improvement plans to the Cape Coral Committee Wednesday afternoon.

Part of FDOT’s vision includes expanding to 6 lanes, adding street lights, and coordinating signal timing to help with traffic flow.

The plan also includes giving pedestrians and bikers more buffer lanes, wider sidewalks, and creating high visibility pedestrian and bicycle markings.
