The CRA and the City of Fort Myers have worked together to revitalize and improve the look of Cleveland Avenue (U.S. 41)!
The CRA provided a $194,200 funding match for a $100,000 FDOT Beautification Grant for the design, installation, and maintenance of median landscaping from Colonial to Boy Scout Drive, including the area under the Colonial overpass.This was the last remaining mile of U.S. 41 in Lee County that was not landscaped. Beautiful, colorful plants and trees have replaced the grassy areas and provide more enjoyable landscaping in the center of the roadway, as well as the large area below the Colonial Boulevard overpass.Now that the project has been finished, the CRA will provide maintenance for the landscaping.
