What charm?????? This city has none, Just another corner, business after business. The fly over would clean up this 30 year intersection of poor planning. The worst designs and businesses that have over stepped good design in the name off profit. Look at the mess of Bonita Beach Rd, you call this a GATEWAY. GO FLY OVER, DISTROY AND RE-BUILD.
The people who oppose any changes to this intersection are only thinking with their own selfishness and shortsightedness. This is one of the most dangerous intersections in Lee county. It needs to be reconfigured. Until this happens, more people will be injured and more will avoid it and the businesses that depend on it. Opposition to any study or changes are only hurting, not helping. Most of the people who currently oppose any changes will not be here to feel the full impact of their decision. Wake up Bonita!
Indeed they need something for all the people riding bikes ! You could get killed very easily with that 6 lane highway like road !
FLYOVERS IN GENERAL CREATE BLIGHT AND DESTROY WALK-IN/DRIVE-IN BUSINESSES. ADDITIONALLY, THEY DO NOT PROVIDE A SMOOTHER TRAFFIC FLOW. YOU MIGHT SAVE 3 MINUTES DUE TO THE ELIMINATION OF A TRAFFIC CONTROL DEVICE, BUT GUESS WHAT? JUST DOWN THE ROAD IS ANOTHER STOPLIGHT. NOT TO MENTION THE COMPLEXITIES AND ADDITIONAL COST OF TRAFFIC CONTROL DEVICES NECESSARY FOR CONTROLLING TRAFFIC GOING UNDER A FLYOVER. ALL THIS TO DO WHAT? " SAVE SOMEONE 3-5 MINUTES IN DRIVING TIME". THEREFORE, BLIGHT AND COST OUTWEIGH THE BENEFIT. DON'T DO IT!!! JMHO
A flyover will absolutely ruin the charm of the small city of Bonita Springs.
