A new westbound Interstate 4 (I-4) exit to southbound Kirkman Road (State Road 435) opens the morning of Monday, October 30, causing motorists to exit I-4 on the right, not the left.
Motorists who previously would exit on the left to southbound Kirkman Road from westbound I-4 now will instead exit nearly half of a mile sooner on the right. All westbound I-4 motorists wishing to exit onto either direction on Kirkman Road will use Exit 75.
From there, motorists then will follow signage on the ramp to either southbound (Exit 75B) or northbound Kirkman Road (Exit 75A). The new ramp will allow for greater capacity and free flow of motorists onto Kirkman Road. Crews will then work on demolishing the old ramp and making room to realign eastbound I-4.

Progress at this interchange is significant, as the new Grand National Drive overpass opened to motorists in early August. To view or download a handout detailing the improvements at Kirkman Road at: http://fdot.tips/kirkman
