This new four-lane road totals 3.8 miles in length and connects existing Sandy Lane at Corkscrew Road to Pelican Colony Boulevard at U.S. 41 to provide a segment of the north-south corridor from the City of Bonita Springs to Alico Road. It was designed within a 100 foot right of way corridor and required a “fast track” approach due to a new regional shopping mall which accelerated the need for the new roadway corridor.

Some of the elements of the project included establishing multiple turn lane locations for present and future usage, defining right of way, buffering with landscape elements, designing water and sewer needs, conveying drainage to joint use ponds, incorporating roundabouts at two intersections, and working with the Seminole Gulf Railway for Roadway crossing and drainage improvements. The roadway characteristics of these phases include new sidewalk, lighting, a sound wall, three new signals; one at US41 at Village Shops Way and two on Sandy Lane for Coconut Road and for Corkscrew Road. A new railroad crossing and an open cut installation of storm drains under Seminole Gulf Railway (SGRW) required critical coordination with the Dispatcher, Engineers and Construction managers at SGRW. .
