The Florida Department of Transportation is expediting significant portions of the I-4 Ultimate Project in Orlando.
The department plans to complete segments of the westbound general use lanes and their connection to the SR 408 interchange by summer 2020, which is 1-2 months earlier.
The $2.3 billion I-4 Ultimate project will reconstruct 21 miles of I-4 from west of Kirkman Rd. to east of State Rd. 434 in Longwood. The specific segments of the I-4 Ultimate project that will be accelerated include:
– Segments of Westbound I-4 through downtown Orlando.
– Portions of the SR 408 interchange.
Acceleration of work in these areas will put more lanes of westbound I-4 into final configuration, reduce the number of construction sequences that would have occurred, and reduce congestion through the most heavily traveled interchange within the I-4 Ultimate project.
