Motorists heading to College Park, the Florida Hospital campus or any other nearby areas accessible via Princeton Street may experience changes as soon as September 22.

The eastbound Interstate 4 (I-4) exit ramp to Princeton Street (Exit 85) is shifting nearly 2 miles sooner and joining with the entrance ramp from Colonial Drive (State Road 50)/Garland Avenue. Motorists using this roadway will travel over Lake Ivanhoe on new permanent lanes adjacent to eastbound I-4.

The entrance point for motorists heading to eastbound I-4 from Colonial Drive will be just above New Hampshire Street. This temporary configuration allows crews more room to construct permanent eastbound I-4 lanes and accommodate future traffic shifts.

The functionality of this road will be similar to the existing combined eastbound I-4 entrance ramp from Princeton and the eastbound I-4 exit ramps to Par Street and Fairbanks Avenue also known as a collector-distributor road.

Another similar shift on eastbound I-4 will occur as soon as early October, and will change access points to and from the Fairbanks Avenue and Lee Road interchanges. Check back in to this page ( for more updates.

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.
