6. County Road 840

County Road 840 is Alico Road from US 41 Tamiami Trail just west of San Carlos Park to CR 850 Corkscrew Road east of Estero.

The road is maintained by the Lee County DOT, except for the I-75 interchange, which is maintained by Florida DOT.

History

It originally was a two-lane rural road connecting the Tamiami Trail to agricultural and industrial land owned by the Atlantic Land and Improvement Company in east Lee County. In 1973, a railroad spur was built along Alico Road to serve mines on Alicos land, although the easternmost 3.5 miles of it were removed in 1994.

Alico Road has since become a major commuter thoroughfare. In the mid- to late 2000s it was widened to six lanes, and the interchange with I-75 was rebuilt as a partial cloverleaf interchange it was originally a folded diamond due to the railroad. In 2007, the west end and the terminus at US 41 was realigned slightly north in preparation for the construction of the SR 739 extension and interchange which was built in 2012.

8. County Road 863

County Road 863 is the county-controlled segment of Fowler Street south of Metro Parkway within the city limits of Fort Myers. North of here, Fowler is designated State Road 739, which continues south along Metro Parkway.

9. County Road 865

County Road 865 exists in three sections. The southernmost section begins in Bonita Springs where it is known as Bonita Beach Road, the main east-west route through Bonita Springs. When it reaches the Gulf of Mexico near Barefoot Beach, it turns north along Hickory Boulevard. It becomes Estero Boulevard as it crosses the Bonita Beach Causeway onto Fort Myers Beach. This section ends at the north end of Fort Myers Beach at SR 865 just south of the Matanzas Pass Bridge.

The central section travels along Gladiolus Drive through Iona, Harlem Heights, and Biggar and passes Lakes Regional Park before ending at US 41 Tamiami Trail.

The northern section runs along Ben C. Pratt Six Mile Cypress Parkway and Ortiz Avenue from SR 739 to SR 80 in Tice.

The segments were once part of a continuous SR 865 and Ortiz Avenue was part of SR 80B.

                                     

10. County Road 867

County Road 867 is McGregor Boulevard from the Sanibel Causeway in Punta Rassa to SR 867 in Iona.

The road was formerly known as SR 867, a designation which still exists on a section of McGregor Boulevard from Iona to McGregor.

                                     

11. County Road 867A

County Road 867A is the main north-south route through Cape Coral, connecting it with North Fort Myers and South Fort Myers.

It begins just south of Fort Myers at US 41 near Villas. From here, it is known as College Parkway, named for its proximity to Florida SouthWestern State College originally Edison Community College.

After an interchange with McGregor Boulevard SR 867, CR 867A crosses the Cape Coral Bridge, CR 867A continues as Cape Coral Parkway for 0.7 miles 1.1 km. Up to this point, it is unsigned, though a part of College Parkway near Summerlin Road is signed as CR 882. At Cape Coral Parkways interchange with Del Prado Boulevard, the route turns north along the street, and is first signed as CR 867A here. The route continues north through much of Cape Coral. Veterans Parkway is one of Cape Corals major east–west routes, and it travels into Fort Myers via the Midpoint Memorial Bridge. Del Prado Boulevard continues northward to Pine Island Road SR 78.

North of Pine Island Road, addresses on Del Prado Boulevard have the attached "North" suffix to the name of the road; south of Pine Island Road uses "South." After Pine Island Road, Del Prado Boulevard continues north as a city street, though the city of Cape Coral maintains the CR 867A designation. It intersects Diplomat Parkway and the Kismet Parkway, before intersecting with US 41 Tamiami Trail at the northern Cape Coral city limits. The extension into North Fort Myers was built in the 1990s.

From US 41, Del Prado Boulevard once again becomes a county road and continues east along the northern edge of North Fort Myers. Just past the Prairie Pines Preserve, it briefly becomes Mellow Drive before it terminates at Slater Road. Future plans call for Del Prado Boulevard to be extended north from Mellow Drive in North Fort Myers around the Prairie Pines Preserve to Interstate 75 with a new interchange near the Lee-Charlotte County border.

Formerly State Road 867A between McGregor Boulevard and Pine Island Road, it became a major route when the Cape Coral Bridge opened in 1964.



                                     

12. County Road 869

County Road 869 is the designation for Summerlin Road which runs from CR 867 McGregor Boulevard in Iona east and north to CR 884 Colonial Boulevard in Fort Myers. It is the main route connecting Fort Myers with the islands of Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel and Captiva. The road is named for Jacob Summerlin, a prominent Punta Rassa cattleman.

Built in the early 1980s, Summerlin Road was planned to be part of State Road 869 a designation which has since been reused for the Sawgrass Expressway near Fort Lauderdale, but the road was never added to the state highway system since it turned over to Lee County before it opened. It was originally intended to be an alternative to McGregor Boulevard SR 867 as a limited-access road, but development along the route has since hindered that intent. To better handle increasing traffic, the intersection with San Carlos Bouelvard SR 865 was upgraded to an interchange in 2007 along with being widened to six lanes. Elevated interchange ramps were also added at the Gladiolus Drive CR 865 intersection at the same time. The College Parkway CR 867A intersection was upgraded to an interchange in 2011 along with further widening.

South of Fort Myers, Summerlin Road roughly follows the route of the abandoned Punta Rassa branch of the Seaboard Air Line Railroad, which was removed in 1952. It runs along the former railroad corridor from just north of Gladiolus Drive to Bass Road.

Beginning at SR 867 in McGregor, CR 876 travels east along Cypress Lake Drive through Cypress Lake to U.S. Route 41 Tamiami Trail. It continues east of US 41 as Daniels Parkway towards Interstate 75 and Southwest Florida International Airport. East of Gateway, CR 876 intersects State Road 82, where it turns north and continues as Gunnery Road through Lehigh Acres before merging with Buckingham Road. Buckingham Road carries CR 876 north through Buckingham to its terminus with SR 80 in Fort Myers Shores.

                                     

14. County Road 881

County Road 881 exists just west of Interstate 75 from the Collier County line in Bonita Springs to CR 840 Alico Road in Three Oaks. Locally, it is known as Three Oaks Parkway north of Coconut Road in Estero, and Imperial Parkway south of this point. The road continues past its southern terminus into Collier County as County Road 881, which is known as Livingston Road. The entire route is controlled by Lee County, except for the short segment between Bonita Beach Road and East Terry Street which is controlled by the city of Bonita Springs though the city maintains the CR 881 designation.

The corridor of CR 881 in Lee County was completed in early 2008 with the opening of Imperial Parkway between Coconut Road in Estero and East Terry Street in Bonita Springs. This made CR 881 a third major thoroughfare connecting Lee and Collier Counties along with U.S. Route 41 and Interstate 75.

Lee County plans to eventually extend Three Oaks Parkway north of its current terminus to Daniels Parkway CR 876. A short segment of the extension was built by a private developer in the early 2010s. The rest of the extension, which would parallel Interstate 75 and connect to Daniels Parkway via Fiddlesticks Boulevard, is set to be completed around 2020.

The eastern section travels through Lehigh Acres along Colonial, Lee, Leeland Heights, and Joel Boulevards from SR 884 / Dynasty Drive in Fort Myers to SR 80 in Alva.

The eastern segment came into existence in the early 1980s when Colonial Boulevard SR 884 was extended from I-75 to connect with State Road 82 at Lee Boulevard. Lee Boulevard was previously State Road 82B while Leeland Heights and Joel Boulevards were part of State Road 873 a designation which also continued south down Alabama Road.

The western segment, which previously ended at State Road 867 McGregor Boulevard, was extended into Cape Coral in 1997 upon the completion of the Midpoint Memorial Bridge and Veterans Parkway.

It is known as Treeline Avenue north of the entrance to Southwest Florida International Airport, and Ben Hill Griffin Parkway south of it.

History

The first major segment of CR 885 to be completed was Ben Hill Griffin Parkway between Alico and Corkscrew Roads. It was named for Ben Hill Griffin, Jr., former chairman of Alico Inc., whose land was partially donated by Griffins son Ben Hill Griffin III to the state for the construction of Florida Gulf Coast University. Ben Hill Griffin Parkway was completed by 1997 in conjunction with the opening of the university, as it was the main access road.

Treeline Avenue, which originally was a short local road off Daniels Parkway, was extended south and connected to Ben Hill Griffin Parkway in early 2005 in conjunction with the opening of the current terminal at Southwest Florida International Airport. Treeline Avenue was later extended to Colonial Boulevard in 2006.
