The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will hold a public information meeting about the I-4 Beyond the Ultimate (BtU) design project in Seminole County. The purpose of this meeting is to provide a project update and present the preliminary design concepts. The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, April 25, 2017, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Sanford City Hall, Utilities Training Room, 300 North Park Avenue, Sanford, Florida 32771. The meeting is an informal open house where project displays will be available for review. A brief looping presentation and other information will be available throughout the evening, and project staff will be available to discuss the project and answer questions.
The project involves the build-out of the interstate to its ultimate condition from one mile east of S.R. 434 to east of U.S. 17-92 in Seminole County, Florida. This project is also referred to as Segment 3 of BtU. The proposed improvements include widening the existing six-lane divided interstate to a 10-lane divided urban interstate. The design proposes the addition of two new Express Lanes and three non-tolled general use lanes in each direction. The four dynamically tolled, Express Lanes (two in each direction) will be priced according to traffic conditions. A barrier wall between the adjacent shoulders will separate the express lanes from the general-use lanes. One auxiliary lane will be provided in some areas in both directions.
