With everything for the I-4 Ultimate improvement project moving forward as planned, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is approaching a decision in determining which proposer team will be chosen to reconstruct the 21 miles of Interstate 4 from Kirkman Road in Orange County to State Road 434 in Seminole County. An announcement is planned for April 23.
In addition to the 21-mile transformation beginning later this year, the I-4 Beyond the Ultimate Project Development and Environmental Reevaluation Study is currently in the works to provide similar solutions for traffic congestion east and west of the I-4 Ultimate project area. One 17-mile segment stretches from U.S. 27 in Polk County east to Kirkman Road in Orange County. Another 19-mile segment stretches from State Road 434 in Seminole County east to State Road 472 in Volusia County.
A public meeting for this study was recently held on March 20, which discussed planned improvements for the nine-mile segment of I-4 in Seminole County from State Road 434 to east of U.S. 17-92. This was an opportunity for members of the public to talk with the FDOT project team and learn more about the location, conceptual design and social, economic and environmental effects of the proposed improvements. An upcoming public meeting for the 10-mile segment of I-4 from east of U.S. 17-92 to east of State Road 472 will soon be scheduled. To learn more, please visit www.I4Express.com.
