I-4 at Daryl Carter Parkway Interim Interchange

The Interstate 4 (I-4) and Daryl Carter Parkway interchange is an interim project of I-4 Beyond the Ultimate. The project is transforming the Daryl Carter Parkway overpass into an interchange, providing additional access to local attractions and helping to relieve congestion at the I-4 and Apopka Vineland Road (State Road (S.R.) 535) interchange.

This interim project will add three new ramps connecting 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. A westbound I-4 entrance ramp will be built as part of a future project. It will also convert the existing Daryl Carter Parkway overpass to a diverging diamond interchange.

The project also includes I-4 improvements from west of Daryl Carter Parkway to west of Central Florida Parkway. Construction is underway 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 S.R. 536.

The project began in November 2022 and is expected to be complete by early 2026.
