FDOT studies portion of US 41 in Punta Gorda for potential safety improvements

PUNTA GORDA, Fla. – More than $5 million may help make downtown Punta Gorda safer, however, the related plan is still years away from becoming reality.

The Florida Department of Transportation is using an already existing project to hopefully improve safety along US 41 from William Street to the base of the US 41 bridge, which is approximately a one-mile-long stretch.

In the last 12 months, Punta Gorda police reported at least 67 accidents have happened on that stretch of road.

Goals for the $5.23 million project include safer biking areas, enhanced crosswalks, improved sidewalks, and enhanced pavement markings.

Pedestrians and cyclists have said that they believe the area is actually already well designed for them — it’s drivers that they have to watch out for.

One cyclist said motorists are usually paying more attention to their phones than to those outside their cars.

FDOT is asking for the public’s input on the project. You have until June 18 to share what safety features you believe would benefit the area. Click here to access the questionnaire.
