Caloosahatchee Bridge

The Caloosahatchee Bridge is a bridge located in Fort Myers, Florida. It carries U. S. Highway 41 over the Caloosahatchee River, where its name comes from; the bridge is 55 feet tall. The Caloosahatchee Bridge was built in 1962 but it did not open for traffic until 1964; the bridge's opening was delayed due to difficult negotiations with landowners at the south side over land needed to connect the bridge to Cleveland Avenue. The opening of the bridge changed the routing of US 41 to bypass downtown Fort Myers. US 41 went through downtown Fort Myers, crossed the Caloosahatchee River on the Edison Bridge, which at the time was a two-lane drawbridge; the old route was designated as the US 41 Business. The south side of the bridge passes over Centennial Park, as well as First Street, the main road through downtown Fort Myers. A loop ramp connects the southbound lanes of the bridge to First Street. Directly south of the bridge is US 41's intersection with McGregor Boulevard, SR 80, SR 82; each of these highways terminate at this intersection.

A two-lane overpass constructed with the Caloosahatchee Bridge crosses this intersection, known as the Five Points interchange, since it is a five-way interchange. The overpass carried both northbound and southbound traffic from the bridge, but was changed to have both lanes carry northbound traffic in the early 1990s; as part of the adoption of HB 7149 in the 2014 Florida Senate session, the bridge, effective July 1, 2014, received the honorary designation of Henry Ford Bridge. However, per the adopted bill, the designation does not change its official name and the local government is not required to change signage to the honorary designation; the City of Fort Myers opted to not rename the bridge.
