Vanderbilt Beach Road Extension

​Collier County Project

The Vanderbilt Beach Road Extension is designed to be a 6 lane divided road system with a planted median.  The County has hired a contractor and is in the design phase of the project which was put on hold in 2008.  Plans originally called for bringing Vanderbilt Beach Road to Desoto Boulevard, the western edge of the Estates.  Based on the most recent plans, it is likely that Phase 1 of the project will end at 16th Street.  Final alignment of Vanderbilt Beach Road from Collier Blvd. to 16th St. NE approved by the Board of County Commissioners on October 22, 2019.

Collier County has funded $86,670,000 for design, right-of-way acquisition and construction in their FY 2019-2022 budget.   Acquisition activities have begun (June 2020).
