    17 man, I do it all the time my companys home office is located in Ft Myers. I take 17 to 70 make a left go about 2-3 miles to 31 make a right then another 30 mins to beach blvd cant miss it. Night... day... morning... no traffic whatsoever and most the time your doing 70mph

    You could also take 17 all the way past 70 to I-75 but I use 31 because its closer to where I need to be.

    My bad. Was thinking of malfunction junction at I-275 & I-4.

    I would still avoid I-75 & I-4 at all cost during the late afternoon, early evening hours.
