County Road 869 - Summerlin Road

Home » Guides » Florida » County Road 869 - Summerlin Road

Lee County Road 869 overlays Summerlin Road 11.7 miles north from CR 867 at Truckland to CR 884 (Colonial Boulevard) in the city of Fort Myers. The four to six lane arterial provides an alternate route to SR 867 and CR 867 along McGregor Avenue and SR 865 (San Carlos Boulevard) south from Ft. Myers to Sanibel Island and Ft. Myers Beach respectively.

Summerlin Road was constructed in the early 1980's to serve two purposes: a relief route for U.S. 41 and as a secondary evacuation corridor for residents living on Sanibel Island and nearby Fort Myers Beach.

The FDOT official Right of Way map from 1973 referenced the corridor along Summerlin Road as S-869. The roadway was never added to the state highway system.
