Eastbound I-4 Exit to Par St. and Fairbanks Ave. Temporarily Shifting
Eastbound Interstate 4 (I-4) motorists traveling to Par Street or Fairbanks Avenue must exit nearly 1.5 miles earlier just north of the Colonial Drive (State Road 50) interchange as part of a temporary traffic configuration.
The shift will occur as early as Tuesday, November 20, and will combine Exits 85, 86 and 87 into one exit point.
The permanent eastbound I-4 entrance ramp from Ivanhoe Boulevard becomes operational as part of this shift. The eastbound I-4 bridge over Princeton Street also opens up, and so motorists seeking to enter eastbound I-4 from Ivanhoe Boulevard and Colonial Drive/Garland Avenue will do so just before Par Street.
This shift also temporarily eliminates the auxiliary lane between Ivanhoe Boulevard and Princeton Street, however, it will be restored in the final configuration. The auxiliary lane is meant to give motorists a safe distance to merge onto eastbound I-4 from Ivanhoe Boulevard.
Additional shifts will continue through the coming months. Check back in to this page (www.i4ultimate.com/ebi4) for more updates.
These temporary configurations will allow workers to complete bridge work on the permanent eastbound I-4 lanes in anticipation of opening the entire span of eastbound I-4 between Colonial Drive (State Road 50) and Maitland Boulevard (State Road 414) sometime in spring of 2019.
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.
Via @I4Ultimate: As soon as the morning of Nov. 20, the exit to Par St. and Fairbanks Ave. are shifting to a new temporary exit nearly 1.5 miles sooner. Please visit i4ultimate.com/ebi4 for more information.
