Overnight/Nighttime I-75 Entrance/Exit Ramp Closures at S.R. 82 Interchange


Beginning Sunday, September 16 through 20, crews will pave I-75 entrance and exit ramps at the S.R. 82 interchange, weather permitting. Ramp closures will occur from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. The ramp closures are as follows:

Sunday, September 16 during the overnight/nighttime hours of 11 p.m. to 5
a.m., the southbound I-75 entrance ramp at S.R. 82 (exit #138) will be closed
for paving. To access I-75 south, motorists should use southbound Ortiz Avenue
to Colonial Boulevard (exit #136).


Monday, September 17 during the overnight/nighttime hours of 11 p.m. to 5
a.m., the northbound I-75 entrance ramp at S.R. 82 (exit #138) will be closed
for paving. To access I-75 north, motorists may continue west on S.R. 82 to
northbound Ortiz Avenue to use the entrance ramp at Luckett Road (exit #139).

Tuesday, September 18 during the overnight/nighttime hours of 11 p.m. to 5
a.m., the southbound I-75 exit ramp at S.R. 82 (exit #138) will be closed for
paving. To access S.R. 82, motorists should use the Luckett Road exit (exit #139)
west to southbound Ortiz Avenue to S.R. 82.

Wednesday, September 19 during the overnight/nighttime hours of 11 p.m.
to 5 a.m., the northbound I-75 exit ramp at S.R. 82 (exit #138) will be closed
for paving. To access S.R. 82, motorists should use the Colonial Boulevard exit
(exit #136) west to northbound Ortiz Boulevard to S.R. 82.

The project multi-lanes the existing roadway to six lanes from Ortiz Avenue to south of Lee/Colonial
Boulevard (C.R. 884) and has reconfigured the intersection at Buckingham Road. New traffic signals
have been added at the Buckingham Road intersection and at the Forum Boulevard intersection. This
project also includes widening the ramps at I-75 and installing new sidewalks and lighting which are all
completed. Landscaping will also be added at the end of the project. Water, sewer and storm drainage
have been replaced along the entire corridor.   Project completion is expected this fall.


Motorists are asked to USE CAUTION while driving through the construction zone and be aware of
construction vehicles during the paving operation. This work is part of the City of Fort Myers’ S.R. 82
Widening Project and is subject to change due to inclement weather or unforeseen conditions.
