Path Repair Project (GATEWAY)

Project Summary:

Repairs to the asphalt paths located at Gateway Blvd, Griffin Dr., Commonwealth Dr., and Westlinks Dr. were completed in March 2023. Concrete path repairs are scheduled to be completed by the end of Fiscal Year 2023.

What to Expect:

During this time, there may be some disruption to pedestrian traffic as certain sections of the paths will be temporarily closed. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and ask that you please exercise caution when navigating the affected areas. The Contractors will work as quickly and efficiently as possible, while ensuring the safety of all community members.



Flowway Weir Control Adjustments (GATEWAY)*

Project Summary:

Flowway Weir Control Adjustments project consists of providing labor, materials, equipment, surveying, and similar work required for the installation of adjustable weirs on existing outfall control structures, constructing new control structures, and storm pipe to allow preemptive flow to leave the GSCDD stormwater management system in order to lower elevations preceding a large storm event, while still maintaining the permitted discharge limit. The work will require dewatering. The project was put out to bid by the District and the contract was awarded by the Board of Supervisors on Feb. 2, 2023.

What to Expect:

The project started with Weirs 2 and 3 in mid-February 2023.

Trucks and construction equipment will be within the District’s communities. Additionally, residents may start noticing crews doing pre-construction video surveys of property and surrounding homes to address any construction-related damage. Any construction-related repairs will be completed after the work is completed.

We understand this may cause interruptions for some residents; however, please be patient, as it is only temporary. As always, we will maintain the highest level of respect, courtesy, and consideration for both residents and visitors.


  • Pond Bank Restoration (GATEWAY)

    Project Summary:

    The pond bank restoration project includes the remediation of the identified and classified stormwater pond banks throughout the Gateway Services CDD. Ponds requiring restoration were identified by GSCDD’s District Engineer and staff based on the severity level and proximity to residential properties. Several stormwater pond banks are degrading as a result of erosion caused by stormwater runoff, wave action during high water periods, and water level fluctuation during storm events. GSCDD will be restoring pond banks yearly during the dry season. Restoration and erosion protection are the goals of the project.

    What to Expect:

    Fiscal Year 2023 pond bank restoration work started in early December 2022 in the Silver Lakes community. The work progressed into the Stoneybrook community and is set to commence in Daniels Preserve in May 2023. FY2023 restoration includes the restoration of eight ponds throughout the Gateway community.

    Trucks and construction equipment will be within the District’s communities. Additionally, residents may start noticing crews doing pre-construction video surveys of property and surrounding homes to address any construction-related damage. The contractor will begin work by staking the limits of work then proceed to install fill on the eroded lake bank followed by grading and compacting the filled material. Once the lake bank has been graded and compacted, the contractor will cut a trench line, install reinforcement fabric, stone and sod. The contractor will also install drain boxes where existing drain lines exist. To complete the project, the contractor will install sprinkler heads above the trench line in instances where sprinklers were removed below the trench line.

    We understand this may cause interruptions for some residents; however, please be patient, as it is only temporary. As always, we will maintain the utmost respect, courtesy, and consideration for residents and visitors.

    These are the tentative dates for the restoration of eight ponds as part of the pond restoration project. However, please be advised that these dates are subject to change due to unforeseen conditions.

    Roundabout: Gateway Boulevard at Griffin Drive (LEE COUNTY)

    Project Summary:

    On Sept. 13, 2022 Lee County opened the bid for the roundabout and the solicitation package can be found here. Proposals for the solicitation were due Oct. 14, 2022. However, due to Hurricane Ian’s impact, the bid opening was rescheduled to Oct. 21, 2022. The initial solicitation #B220550JJB was canceled by Lee County on Nov. 16, 2022; however, on Nov. 18, 2022, Lee County issued solicitation #B230044JJB for this project. The proposals for the solicitation were due on Friday, Dec. 2, 2022. Lee County awarded the contract for this project to Wright Construction Group, Inc.

    Lee County desired to contract with a qualified Contractor to perform utility work, roadway, fountain, and drainage improvements to the intersection of Gateway Blvd and Griffin Drive in Fort Myers, Florida. Work will consist of the following: removal and relocation of existing utilities, open cuts, fountain construction, and construction of a roundabout with drainage improvements at the intersection of Gateway Blvd and Griffin Drive.

    What to Expect:

    Lee County began construction on April 17, 2023. Construction is expected to take about one year. The initial work includes clearing vegetation to accommodate planned traffic shifts, installing temporary pavement, installing a force main, fountain and landscaping, and constructing the roundabout. Expect periodic lane closures during construction. Drivers should be cautious of contractors in the field and large construction vehicles in the area. The contractors will use Variable Message Boards (VMB) to notify the public about any traffic pattern changes during construction.


    Administrative Building(GATEWAY)

    Project Summary:

    The Board of Supervisors started consideration discussions for an administrative building in June 2022. On August 18, 2022, the Board of Supervisors decided not to proceed with the acquisition of two parcels of land for a total cost of $825,000. The District conducted a comprehensive search for a suitable location to accommodate its staff, and concluded that constructing a new facility on land already owned by the District would be the most cost-effective option. As a result, the District plans to construct an Administrative Building on an existing District-owned site, also known as the “Commons”, located at 11301 Gateway Boulevard. The intent is to relocate office personnel to the new building and to convert the existing building at 13240 Griffin Drive into a public works/utilities field operations center. The Engineers Estimate of Probable Cost, which aligns with the District’s allocated budget for the administrative building, amounts to $3,620,000.00, as mentioned in the Supplemental Engineer’s Report dated Dec. 1, 2022. The budget accounts for preliminary design, field surveying, geotechnical investigations, permitting, construction, and construction administration.

    What to Expect:

    Construction is anticipated to commence Mid-2024, pending permits, bid solicitations and the Board of Supervisors’ approval. The Administrative Building will include office space for District staff, multi-purpose rooms, a new boardroom/assembly space, storage, meeting space, restrooms, showers, lockers and provide an Emergency Operations Center for the District. To accomplish development of the new Administration Building, architectural, structural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protect design services are required in addition to site and landscape design.
