The interchange of Interstate 4 (I-4) and Apopka-Vineland Road (State Road (S.R.) 535) is a heavily traveled gateway to theme parks, shopping, and resorts. Planned improvements consist of two projects combined in a single, design-build contract. Construction is expected to start in fall 2023.
FPID No. 448914-1
This project will partially reconstruct the I-4 and Apopka-Vineland Road interchange to enhance safety and improve access to and from westbound I-4. Planned improvements include:
- Constructing a new loop ramp from northbound Apopka-Vineland Road to westbound I-4. The ramp will enhance safety and mobility by eliminating the need for motorists to turn left across traffic.
- Realigning the westbound I-4 entrance ramp from southbound Apopka-Vineland Road, improving traffic flow and giving motorists more time to merge onto I-4.
- Lengthening the westbound I-4 exit ramp to Apopka-Vineland Road to reduce backups onto the I-4 mainline.
- Milling and resurfacing Apopka-Vineland Road and extending storage for left- and right-turn lanes.
FPID No. 449771-1
This project will add a single, buffer-separated, westbound managed lane to I-4 from west of S.R. 536 to west of Daryl Carter Parkway. The complete managed lane will be built in three separate projects extending from west of S.R. 536 to west of Sand Lake Road (S.R. 482).
