The pedestrian bridge over I-4 in Maitland is now open. The I-4 Ultimate project has been busy building roads, repairing bridges, and reconstructing interchanges along the I-4 corridor, all to create the Ultimate experience for Central Florida drivers. The benefit of that effort is not limited to motor vehicle drivers. As part of the I-4 Ultimate project, more than 10 miles of sidewalk and 5 miles of bike lane will be added or widened.
Pedestrian crossings will be upgraded at 12 critical junctures. One of the most impressive new pedestrian features is the new pedestrian bridge over I-4, just south of Maitland Boulevard.
The new bridge connects the neighborhoods and commercial buildings of western Maitland with downtown Maitland and residential areas on the east side. It allows bicycle commuters to reach the office buildings on Keller Road and Lake Destiny Road from the SunRail station on Orlando Avenue.
Whether users are making the bridge part of their daily commute or just using it for recreation, they will be able to make use of the expansive ramps and flat areas to rest near the top of the bridge. The bridge is comprised of a 12-foot wide path through a truss structure with aesthetic lighting and lettering.
