Grady Minor, the design firm for the City of Cape Coral’s Nicholas Parkway West Access Management and Waterline Project, designed modifications to improve safety, traffic flow, and utilities along Nicholas Parkway. The project limits extend approximately 1.6 miles from Pine Island Road to Santa Barbara Boulevard.
The project closes some of the current median openings on Nicholas Parkway and adds left turn lanes at others. Click here to view the access management changes. The goal of these changes is to reduce the potential conflict points.
Other transportation and drainage related improvements include:
- Adding median curbing and gutters
- Resurfacing the pavement
- Reconstructing the pavement, as needed
- Updating pavement markings and signage and
- Upgrading drainage and swales, as needed.
The project also replaces 7,000 linear feet of existing 8-inch PVC waterline with a new 12-inch PVC waterline within the southbound lane. The new watermain includes new valves, fire hydrants, service laterals and other fittings, as well as modifications to curbing, sidewalks, and driveways.
Lane closures are necessary to complete construction of this project. The two southbound lanes of Nicholas Parkway West are anticipated to be closed from July 2021 through December 2021. The two northbound lanes of Nicholas Parkway West are anticipated to be closed from January 2022 through May 2022. Throughout construction, one lane of northbound and one lane of southbound traffic will be maintained. The City is requesting that only local traffic use Nicholas Parkway West during construction.
