I-4/SR 408 Interchange Improvement Project
will be transformed beginning in 2006 to accommodate traffic in the
fastest growing region in the state.
The Florida Department
of Transportation will begin work on improvements to the I-4/SR 408
interchange beginning early next year. Located in downtown Orlando,
the I-4/SR 408 interchange is Central Florida's busiest interchange
and must be improved to efficiently accommodate the increased traffic
that accompanies the region's rapid growth. Upcoming enhancements will
be a vital tool in managing traffic congestion for the greater Orlando
Metro area of 1.8 million residents.
project will include the construction of two flyover ramps from SR 408
to eastbound Interstate 4. These ramps will allow traffic to enter the
interstate from either direction on SR 408 and will eliminate the existing
bottleneck. The project will also feature a new Anderson Street bridge,
a new exit ramp to Anderson Street from westbound I-4 and a new entrance
ramp to I-4 westbound from Anderson Street. Aesthetic treatments will
serve to enhance the visual appeal of the I-4/SR 408 interchange and
maintain a sense of style for downtown Orlando.
began on the three year project on Monday, April 3, 2006.
