The public is invited to learn more about the I-4 Ultimate project and how it is transforming Seminole County, as well as the entire 21-mile corridor, during a public information open house scheduled for Thursday, February 9, from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Hilton Orlando/Altamonte Springs, 350 Northlake Boulevard, Altamonte Springs.
“We encourage the public to attend this event to learn more about the project, view area maps and displays, and discuss the project with staff,” said Loreen Bobo, P.E., I-4 Ultimate Construction Program Manager.
Major changes planned for the northern end of the project will be highlighted during the meeting, such as improvements to State Road (S.R.) 436 and S.R. 434 interchanges, Central Parkway overpass and Wymore Road-Douglas Avenue intersection.
The project officially launched in February 2015 and expected completion is 2021. The I-4 Ultimate project is rebuilding 21 miles of Interstate 4 from Kirkman Road in Orange County to S.R. 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 existing roadway.
Additional project information, including an up-to-date list of lane and ramp closures, are posted on i4Ultimate.com. Motorists are encouraged to sign up for project newsletters and route-specific alerts through the website to help make informed decisions about when and where to travel.
