Travel routes into and from Southwest Florida International Airport temporarily are different during overnight hours (11 p.m. to 5 a.m.) each night/overnight next week. Motorists should expect and plan for these overnight changes starting Monday night (November 3, 2014), continuing each night next week, and ending early Sunday morning (November 9):
To the airport: Motorists must access the airport’s entrance from the south using Ben Hill Griffin Parkway from Alico Road (from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m.). People catching early morning flights should note this route and plan extra travel time.
Leaving the airport: Motorists must turn right onto Treeline Avenue, which intersects Daniels Road (from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m.).
Construction crews working on the I-75 – Airport Direct Connect project are installing bridge beams over the intersection at Ben Hill Griffin Parkway/Treeline Avenue, and the roadway under the new overpass is closed to traffic while crews are working. Detour signs also will direct drivers. Emergency services will be able to travel through the closure if necessary. Click here for more information.
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.
