“…Cape Coral’s skyline on two major roads is changing forever. For the first time, billboards are showing up in the city.
Last summer, the city voted to build two digital boards, and this week, construction crews went up in the air to put them together.
One billboard is at Veterans Parkway at Del Prado Boulevard while the other is at the foot of the Cape Coral Bridge in the southern part of the city.
Residents living near the structures said it felt like they went up overnight.
The digital billboard towering over Veterans Parkway is 75 feet tall and sits right next to a residential street…
Cape Coral city councilors voted in June of 2016 to approve the two projects…
Currently, the city’s sign ordinance doesn’t allow billboards anywhere within city limits. The new structures are an exception to that rule because they will display public information, emergency messages and traffic messages..”
