Looking back at 2016, the I-4 Ultimate Improvement Project team has the satisfaction in knowing that Central Florida motorists are getting closer to an improved Interstate 4 (I-4).
The project team has made significant progress in the past year. The 2016 Year in Review summarizes the major accomplishments from the project’s first full year of construction.
Already big changes are happening that benefit motorists, as a growing workforce continues building lanes, bridges and intersections. The $2.3 billion public-private partnership, overseen by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), remains committed to improving safety and mobility on this vital highway in this fast-growing region.
Since the ceremonial groundbreaking in February 2015, the project has moved toward the anticipated need of 2,000 jobs, including 250 on-the-job trainees.
The I-4 Ultimate project is positively impacting the greater Central Florida community. The 2016 Year in Review highlights high-school student field trips to the I-4 Ultimate office to learn from FDOT bridge engineers, maintenance of traffic managers and other I-4 Ultimate staff.
