Route from Wesley Chapel, Fl. to Ft. Myers Beach, Fl.
« on: March 20, 2011, 12:01:11 pm »
I am looking for a new route from Wesley Chapel (Near the northern reconnection of I-275 and I-75) to Fort Myers Beach. I use to take Bruce B Downs to Flatwoods Park to Old Morris Bridge Rd. to Hanley Rd. to Route 301 south. Rt. 301 to Route 41 south through Bradenton and Sarasota south to Port Charlotte and onto Ft. Myers.  It is very direct but, there is so much construction and traffic that it is dangerous in parts. I am too far west to pick up The ACO Connector to Route 17 south to Punta Gorda. (although I would ride the extra 30 miles if I knew of a safe route.) Any suggestions would be very helpful. Thank You.
