Our Work

Transportation Council

The ECCL Transportation Council works alongside the agencies planning and funding roads in and around Estero and surrounding communities – sometimes decades in advance.

Our Values

To proactively support the adequate funding and planning for safe and sufficient roadways in and serving Estero and surrounding communities.








What we’re doing…

Roadways in Estero and surrounding communities are built and maintained by a variety of local, state and even national agencies, as well as private organizations. Planning and funding for these roads is done years in advance. The only way to have an impact is to be involved before the problem is evident.
