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. Improvements consist of two Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) projects combined in a single, design-build contract.
Construction will start in fall 2023. The design for this project is ongoing. The final configuration of the interchange will be very similar to what is shown in the documents and handouts below, but small refinements are anticipated. This page will be updated as more information becomes available.
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. This project includes:
- 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 express lane to I-4 from west of S.R. 536 to west of Daryl Carter Parkway. The complete express lane will be built in three separate projects extending from west of S.R. 536 to west of Sand Lake Road (S.R. 482).
