The Florida Department of Transportation’s Ultimate I-4 construction project is underway. Once complete, this 21-mile makeover will transform the region while improving travel and increasing economic opportunity and growth.
This $2.3 billion project will create thousands of local construction jobs and boost the economy.
Road closures and construction will start in the next few months and could impact normal travel routes. One major closure in Downtown will be the permanent closure of the eastbound Ivanhoe Boulevard exit ramp. Eastbound drivers will be provided alternate routes when they exit at Amelia Street/State Road (SR) 50 or Princeton Street. This exit ramp closure is part of the new design to make room for the widened roadway and one of the two direct connections between I-4 and the Express Lanes downtown.
To learn more about this and other upcoming road closures and detours, residents can attend a community meeting on Wednesday, March 25 from 5-8 p.m. at the Orange County School Board – Joe Davis Board Room at 445 Amelia Street. The Florida Department of Transportation will be on hand at the meeting to answer any questions.
During construction, motorists are encouraged to use alternative modes of transportation, including SunRail, carshare, bike share, LYNX, LYMMO, carpooling and adjusting schedules when possible to avoid traffic delays.
