UPDATE: Due to inclement weather, the new ramp opening is being postponed until tomorrow (Saturday) night
A new westbound Interstate 4 (I-4) exit ramp to westbound Maitland Boulevard (State Road 414) and northbound Lake Destiny Road is scheduled to open the night of Saturday, January 7.
Drivers will exit on to the new westbound ramp (exit 90B) approximately half a mile sooner than they do today. The ramp reduces merging hazards on westbound Maitland Boulevard. Motorists exiting westbound I-4 will be able to access northbound Lake Destiny Road without traveling onto Maitland Boulevard. An illustration of the new ramp is available online at http://fdot.tips/WBI4exitWB414.
This new ramp at the Maitland Boulevard interchange is the seventh temporary ramp configuration to open at the interchange in the past few months. Of the 15 major interchanges undergoing reconstruction as part of the 21-mile I-4 Ultimate project, the Maitland Boulevard interchange has some of the most noticeable changes in traffic patterns. The project is elevating Maitland Boulevard, adding ramp access points and eliminating select traffic signals to promote better traffic flow.

Modifications or extensions to this schedule may become necessary due to weather delays or other unforeseen conditions. Motorists are advised to maintain a safe speed when driving through the work zone.
