A new eastbound Interstate 4 (I-4) on-ramp from Princeton Street and exit ramp from Par Street is opening the morning of August 28.

The new ramps will be part of a new temporary collector-distributor road, adjacent to eastbound I-4. A collector distributor road allows multiple options of entering and existing the interstate similar to a ramp but encompassing more movements. The temporary road is designed to carry traffic from Princeton Street to eastbound I-4 and from eastbound I-4 to Par Street during construction.

Motorists wishing to enter I-4 will travel nearly one quarter of a mile on the ramp while motorists wishing to exit onto Par Street from I-4 will exit onto the ramp nearly a quarter of a mile sooner just after crossing over Princeton Street. The shift is necessary to safely demolish and reconstruct eastbound I-4 lanes while maintaining traffic flow.

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.
