Marco Island residents can expect to see work at the intersection of Winterberry Drive and South Collier Boulevard for the next few weeks as a new traffic signal is being added.

Public Works Director Tim Pinter said that a contractor is mobilizing and expected to begin excavations this week as part of the project that will replace a three-way stop sign with a traffic signal.

Marriott Crystal Shores is financing the bulk of the project with its $300,000 contribution. The city of Marco Island's cost is $25,480, which will come of the capital improvements fund.

Pinter said the project is expected to take 4-5 weeks to complete.
