I-4 construction in Orlando
« on: November 06, 2017, 06:26:05 PM »

Is there a website explaining the construction or expansion of I-4 from International Parkway to Sanford?

I noticed some odd bridge supports downtown. It looks like FDOT is using steel girders as vertical supports under I-4 ? Or are those temporary supports? Downtown around the Amway arena. It looks like they are slowly trying to replace the present downtown bridges along with expansion of course.

Since when are they widening it up there?

I flew out of Sanford yesterday, and there was construction on I-4 all the way from downtown Orlando to the major road that takes you to the airport.

It's part of the I-4 Ultimate project, it's for the completion of the reconstruction of the I-4/FL 408 interchange.

I know about all that. But that doesn't match your initial post.

Oops, Ok, I meant International Drive on the south side of Orlando. From Sand Lake Road. Sorry for the confusion.

FYI the WB I-4 permanent SB Kirkman Ramp is now open.  I used it and its nice to not have to deal with traffic in the left lane as the ramp is on the right.

They are now extending this construction project through the tourist areas to the tune of over 2 billion.

Quote
I-4 Beyond the Ultimate: Building a Better I-4The Florida Department of Transportationís I-4 Beyond the Ultimate is reconstructing large portions of Interstate 4 (I-4) in Central Florida to create a signature corridor that will increase safety, mobility and connectivity in the region.

I-4 Beyond the Ultimate extends the eastern endpoint of the I-4 Ultimate project another 20 miles and also adds 20 miles to its western endpoint. The BtU segments will connect seamlessly with I-4 Ultimate.

The project is divided into several design segments. Each must undergo a stringent, multistep process that includes planning, environmental study, preliminary design, right-of-way considerations, design and construction. While the sections stand at different points in the overall process, the Development and Environment (PD&E) Reevaluation Study has been finalized for the entire project.

Crossroads Shopping Center in LBV will be closed as FDOT seized it to make more ramps to FL 535 as part of the Beyond the Ultimate Project.  So Buffalo Wild Wings, TGI Fridays, and Goodings Supermarket will be going and every other fast food including Johnnies fine dining steakhouse from that location that served tourists for decades.

The construction won't lead to the closure of the Seminole County Rest Areas, will it?

Because I'm trying to get pics of all the rest areas on I-4.
