The I-4 Beyond the Ultimate (BtU) project is close to wrapping up the Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Reevaluation Studies, and the part segmented for the next phase is moving into design in 2015. The entire project covers 21.2 miles of Interstate 4 from U.S. 27 in Polk County east to Kirkman Road in Orange County and 19 miles from State Road 434 in Seminole County east to State Road 472 in Volusia County.

Funding needed to acquire right of way for two segments, State Road 528 to Kirkman Road and State Road 434 to U.S. 17-92, is included in the Florida Department of Transportation’s (FDOT) five-year work program. I-4 BtU includes some exciting features to improve traffic flow, like a direct connection from I-4 Ultimate’s Express Lanes to proposed Express Lanes on State Road 528, as well as I-4 Express Lanes to State Road 417 and Wekiva Parkway.

Upcoming public hearings and meetings will give Central Florida residents a chance to speak with the FDOT project team to learn more about the proposed improvements. Visit for more information.
