Bay Street

Utility Relocation Project

Beginning Monday, June 18, contractors for the City of Fort Myers will close Bay Street from Hendry Street to just west of Dean Street while crews place electric and cable underground and remove overhead wires.  Bay Street in this area and Bayview Court will close to vehicular traffic and parking.  The sidewalk on the south side of Bay Street will remain open for as long as possible. Dean Street from First Street to Bay Street will be open for pedestrian access only.  The City of Palms parking garage will remain accessible on Bay Street. This project is expected to be completed in approximately 90 days.


Two loading zones will be temporarily relocated during construction.  (New locations shown in purple.)


  • Bay Street loading zone -relocated to the southbound lane on Hendry Street just north of Bay Street.
  • Dean Street loading zone – relocated to the northbound lane of Broadway just south of First Street.
