With construction on the Maitland Boulevard interchange at Interstate 4 (I-4) slated for completion in three years, construction activities are full steam ahead with multiple traffic pattern changes scheduled for the area.
Construction to elevate Maitland Boulevard over surface streets creating a free-flow interchange with I-4 requires more than 20 traffic pattern shifts. The first traffic shift occurred last month. The long-term traffic pattern shifted eastbound travel lanes on Maitland Boulevard to the median for approximately three-quarters of a mile between Gateway Drive and Keller Road. Download the handout.
Also as a result of elevating Maitland Boulevard over surface streets, Pembrook Drive permanently closed at north Keller Road on August 31. This closure will allow Keller Road to be realigned at Maitland Boulevard. More info here.
This week, the westbound lanes of Maitland Boulevard east of the I-4 interchange, shifted to the median. The long-term traffic pattern is less than an eighth of a mile near Hope Road. In addition, the Hope Road entrance and exit ramps to and from Maitland Boulevard shifted to the median.
Motorists will continue to encounter lane and ramp closures during non-peak travel times in the Maitland area. Stay up-to-date on I-4 Ultimate construction by signing up for weekly alerts.
