A major traffic shift (see handout) on westbound Interstate 4 (I-4) in the Ivanhoe area is rescheduled for Monday, October 5. The long-term traffic pattern will relocate the westbound lanes to the west of the existing traffic lanes.
Tentatively scheduled to occur on September 28, the decision to delay the traffic shift came due to concerns over the pavement being ready to handle the traffic pattern switch.
Due to the complexity of the operation, work will occur during the course of two nights. The traffic shift is expected to begin overnight on Saturday, October 3, and be complete overnight Sunday, October 4, weather permitting. The traffic shift is approximately a half mile long across Lake Ivanhoe.
All of the work is planned during overnight hours, and the new westbound lane configuration will be ready for morning drivers using westbound I-4 on Monday, October 5.
Further 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.

The I-4 Ultimate project is rebuilding 21 miles of Interstate 4 (I-4) from west of Kirkman Road in Orange County to east of State Road 434 in Seminole County, adding two new dynamic tolled Express Lanes in each direction, replacing more than 140 bridges, reconfiguring 15 major interchanges and reconstructing the entire roadway.
