ORLANDO, Fla. – Buckle up, drivers. More construction is coming soon to I-4.
Developers showed off their plans Wednesday to expand the 21-mile stretch of construction on the interstate in a project they are calling "I-4 Beyond The Ultimate".
The I-4 overhaul currently focuses west of Kirkman Road in Orange County to east of State Road 434 in Seminole County. The new phase of construction would extend the work from S.R. 434 in Longwood, into Volusia County.
"This is a much smaller improvement project," said David Parks, I-4 Beyond The Ultimate public information officer, "This is designed to help when drivers are leaving the express lanes in the downtown areas and transition into Seminole County."
