The Florida Department of Transportation reports that two new Interstate 4 projects are scheduled to begin in the second half of 2022.
These include the reconstruction of the Daryl Carter Parkway overpass. This project will add three new ramps connecting Interstate 4 (I-4) to Daryl Carter Parkway: exit ramps from both directions of I-4 to Daryl Carter Parkway and an entrance ramp to eastbound I-4. It will also convert the existing Daryl Carter Parkway overpass to a diverging diamond interchange. Right-of-way acquisition is underway.
A westbound I-4 entrance ramp will be built as part of a future project.
This project will include construction of a single, buffer-separated, managed lane from west of Daryl Carter Parkway to west of Central Florida Parkway. This managed lane will be constructed in three separate projects with the finished lane extending from west of Sand Lake Road to west of State Road 536.
Letting for this design-bid-build project is anticipated in June 2022.
The Sand Lake Road (State Road 482) and Interstate 4 (I-4) interchange provides a vital gateway to some of Central Florida’s biggest attractions. The interchange is being reimagined as a diverging diamond configuration. The project will reconfigure and lengthen ramps at the interchange and improve capacity on Sand Lake Road and Turkey Lake Road.
Left turns from westbound Sand Lake Road to southbound Turkey Lake Road will be eliminated. Instead, drivers will access Turkey Lake Road via the new loop ramp.
In addition, the project will include reconstructing the I-4 general use lanes from west of Sand Lake Road to the end of the I-4 Ultimate project. Two westbound, barrier-separated, managed lanes will be built from west of Sand Lake Road to west of Kirkman Road. These will transition to a single, buffer-separated managed lane in the westbound direction from west of Sand Lake Road and tie in just west of Central Florida Parkway. This managed lane will be constructed in three separate projects with the finished lane extending from west of Sand Lake Road to west of State Road 536.
Letting for this design-build project is anticipated in June 2022.
These two interchange projects will include the construction of two segments of a new buffer-delineated managed lane on I-4, with the third and final segment coming as part of a future project.
