The new Southwest Florida International Airport Signs welcome visitors to the airport from I-75.
Thru value engineering, Signs by Crannie was able to redesign the signs mounted across the 4-lane roadway using polycarbonate panels instead of the original plan of using glass panels. The new materials made the signage substantially lighter, much safer and less expensive for the taxpayers.
Each arch spans a 100′ roadway. One is visible as you enter the airport, while the other is visible exiting the airport.
The letters on the airport signs are LED illuminated to provide long life and minimal maintenance. The power supplies for the LEDs are located under the bridge for easier maintenance and access, as lane closures are very expensive on an interstate highway.
The Southwest Florida International Airport is operated by the Lee County Port Authority (LCPA). The LCPA operates Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) and Page Field (FMY) in Fort Myers, Florida. Both airports are vital economic drivers serving the traveling public of a five-county air trade area that includes Lee, Charlotte, Collier, Hendry and Glades counties.
