LEHIGH ACRES — Pavement Maintenance, a Fort Myers-based contractor, has won a bid for $2.3 million in road improvement projects in Lehigh Acres.
Lee County Commissioners approved the contract, the first in a $5 million commitment for this budget year, according to a statement. The contract includes resurfacing, excavation, installing drainage culvert pipes, sodding and striping for about 100 local roads, totaling 60 miles of roadway.
The Lee County Department of Transportation maintains about 1,500 miles of paved roads in Lehigh Acres. Lee County Commissioner Frank Mann, whose district includes Lehigh Acres, says the county’s $5 million-per-year commitment for the last three years is significant. “The tremendous progress due to this allocation of funds has greatly improved Lehigh’s neighborhood streets,” Mann says in the statement.
