The Florida Department of Transportation’s Ultimate I-4 construction project is underway. This $2.3 billion project will create thousands of local construction jobs and boost our economy.
Once complete, this 21-mile makeover will transform our region and enhance livability in our community, for our businesses and our citizens, while improving travel and increasing economic opportunity and growth.
Road closures and construction will start in the next few months and could impact your normal travel routes. One major closure in our 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 you are invited to attend a community meeting this Wednesday, March 25 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Orange County School Board – Joe Davis Board Room, 445 Amelia Street, Orlando, FL 32801. The Florida Department of Transportation will be on hand at the meeting to answer any questions.
Also, during construction, consider using alternative modes of transportation including SunRail, Carshare, Bikeshare, LYNX, LYMMO, carpooling and adjusting schedules when possible to avoid traffic delays.
