Fort Meyers Beach to MI -Alternative route/not I-75

Trying to avoid the mass exodus out of Fort Meyers beach this weekend/spring break. I-75 proves to be bumper to bumper every year. Is there an alternative route that would avoid all of that traffic while not adding too much extra time to the already-long trip. We were looking at 41. Any advice? Thanks.

Just this morning I drove from punta gorda to Sarasota on 41. Much heavier traffic than last week, and lots of construction.

Going straight north, no. Going to Orlando, yes.

41 would be a really bad idea.
