About the construction project


The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) continues work in Charlotte County to expand I-75 to six lanes from the Lee/Charlotte county line to Tuckers Grade (exit #158). Crews will be adding a lane in each direction to the inside of the roadway. Additionally, the contractor is making drainage improvements to the segment of I-75 from Tuckers Grade (exit #158) to North Jones Loop Road (exit #161) as a part of this project.

Crews are adding lanes, resurfacing the existing roadway, performing bridge work, making drainage improvements, and adding guardrail, signs and pavement markings on an 11-mile segment of I-75 from the Lee/Charlotte county line to south of Tuckers Grade (exit #158). Crews are also making drainage improvements from north of Tuckers Grade (exit #158) to south of North Jones Loop Road (exit #161). Motorists should expect nighttime/overnight lane closures while crews widen the roadway.
