The new southbound exit ramp to Alico Road is now open.  Southbound motorists traveling to Alico Road now exit about a mile south of Daniels Parkway, follow the lane parallel to the interstate under the new Direct Connect bridge and continue down the ramp to Alico Road.  The exit number remains #128. FDOT urges caution as drivers adjust to the newly located exit ramp.

 




 

About the design/build project

FDOT is building a direct connection from I-75 to Southwest Florida International Airport that delivers enhanced access from this strategic interstate corridor to one of the nation’s top 50 airports.

Using new northbound lanes parallel to I-75 south of the Alico Road interchange and new southbound lanes parallel to I-75 south of the Daniels Parkway interchange that bridges the interstate, traffic flows eastbound onto a becoming boulevard over Treeline Avenue/Ben Hill Griffin Parkway onto Terminal Access Road, the entrance to the airport. Motorists leaving the airport also will enjoy the same continuous connection returning to the interstate.


Along this attractive gateway, premier landscaping and aesthetics welcome both visitors to the area and residents back home. The I-75 – Airport Direct Connect will reduce congestion on local roads and move travelers, business people, commerce and industry more efficiently through southern Lee County.
