Motorists can now sign up to receive advance construction alerts for work anticipated to begin this summer at the Interstate 4 (I-4) and County Road (C.R.) 532 interchange near ChampionsGate in Osceola County.
The upcoming construction project will transform the I-4 at C.R. 532 interchange into a Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI). The Florida Department of Transportation interchange project will improve ramps and add bike lanes and sidewalks along C.R. 532.
The I-4 Advance Construction Alert System offers advance notification about nightly lane, ramp, and full roadway closures sent directly to your inbox or cell phone. Sign up at I4Beyond.com/alerts.
When signing up for advance construction alerts, use the “Alert Locations” dropdown menu to select either “Between two Interchanges” or “Around an Interchange.” If you select “Between two Interchanges,” select the interchanges where you enter and exit I-4 regularly on your daily commute. Under “Around an Interchange,” choose “I-4/ChampionsGate Boulevard (CR-532)” if you are only interested in C.R. 532 alerts. You will only receive alerts for the area(s) you have selected, ensuring that the alerts are relevant to your commute.
If you have previously signed up for alerts on the I-4 Ultimate project, you will need to return to I4Beyond.com/Alerts, enter your email address and zip code, and change your preferences to include the “I-4/ChampionsGate Boulevard (CR-532)” selection in the dropdown menu.
A second construction project in the ChampionsGate area is anticipated to begin in fall 2021. Crews will begin the construction of new eastbound and westbound I-4 auxiliary lanes, one in each direction, between the ramps of State Road (S.R.) 429 and C.R. 532, as well as an auxiliary lane on northbound S.R. 429 between I-4 and Sinclair Road. The westbound I-4 exit ramp and the eastbound I-4 entrance ramp at the C.R. 532 interchange will also be widened to two lanes to increase traffic flow and capacity. Additionally, this project will mill and resurface eastbound and westbound I-4 from the Polk-Osceola County line to west of S.R. 417, and S.R. 429 between I-4 and Sinclair Road.
