A major east-west thoroughfare and commuter corridor through central Lee County, Florida State Road 884 and Lee County Road 884 make up a 37.6-mile arc connecting Cape Coral, Fort Myers and Lehigh Acres. State Road 884 follows only 5.3 miles of Colonial Boulevard between U.S. 41 (Cleveland Avenue) and Interstate 75 in Fort Myers while CR 884 extends west via the Midpoint Memorial bridge into Cape Coral along Veterans Memorial Parkway and east into Lehigh Acres along Lee and Joel Boulevards.
Lee County 884 begins at SR 78 (Pine Island Road) and CR 765 (Burnt Store Road) in west Cape Coral. The county road overlays Veterans Memorial Parkway south and east through the city, crossing several north-south arterials before meeting CR 867A (Del Prado Boulevard) at a single point urban interchange (SPUI). Spanning the Caloosahatchee River via the Veterans Midpoint Memorial Bridge into Fort Myers, CR 884 follows Colonial Boulevard along an urban corridor to its first end at a SPUI with U.S. 41 (Cleveland Avenue).
SR 884 continues east along Colonial Boulevard along a busy four to six lane thoroughfare to eastern reaches of Fort Myers and I-75. CR 884 resumes beyond Interstate 75 for the remainder of Colonial Boulevard to SR 82. The county road overtakes Lee Boulevard into Lehigh Acres, traveling across the unincorporated area to its end at Joel Boulevard. Joel Boulevard continues CR 884 east and north to its end at SR 80 near Alva.

|Views of the Midpoint Memorial Bridge as seen from Horton Park and boat ramp in Cape Coral. The span was opened October 19, 1997 connecting central Cape Coral and Fort Myers. Rising to 55 feet, the mid rise span funnels an average of 7.4 million vehicles annually between the two cities.1 Photos taken 12/23/11.|
|Standing at 20 feet from base to flag pole tip, this statue is a replica of the actual flag raising that took place on the isle of Iwo Jima, February 19, 1945. Created in 1964, the Iwo Jima replica was originally part of The Rose Garden attraction in south Cape Coral2. It was moved by 1980 to near the corner of Del Prado Boulevard and Viscaya Parkway, and finally moved to its current location by 1998 at Four Mile Cove Ecological Preserve. Photos taken 11/22/12.|
