CAPE CORAL, Fla. — The City of Cape Coral is using grant money to build nearly 15 miles of sidewalks over the next five years.

This week crews are installing sidewalks along Ceitus Parkway and Burnt Store Road.

Officials said the goal is to have sidewalks within a two mile radius of every school by the time the project is finished.

In 2021 the city installed four sidewalks in the following areas:

  • Skyline (Trafalgar to SR-78)
  • SE 6th Street (Del Prado to SE 25th Av)
  • Trafalgar Parkway (Chiquita to Surfside)
  • NW 20th Av/Nott Road (Trafalgar to SR-78)

City officials say they plan to install sidewalks into the following areas within five years:

  • Tropicana Pkwy (Santa Barbara Blvd. to Andalusia Blvd.)
  • Nelson Rd. (SW 2nd Ter. to Tropicana Pkwy)
  • Embers Pkwy (Old Burnt Store Rd. to Burnt Store Rd.)
  • Embers Pkwy /Nicholas Pkwy (Chiquita Blvd. to Nicholas Pkwy)
  • El Dorado Blvd. S/ Ceitus Pkwy (SW 31st PL to SW 2nd Ter.)
  • Ceitus Pkwy (Old Burnt Store Rd. to Burnt Store Rd.)
  • SW 4TH ST (El Dorado Blvd. to Chiquita Blvd.)

On Wednesday, the city council will meet to learn how the project is progressing.

We will provide updates as we learn more.
