As part of the project, the Daryl Carter Parkway overpass — between Central Florida Parkway and State Road (S.R.) 535 — will be transformed into a Diverging Diamond Interchange. The interchange will give motorists an alternate route to reach retailers and restaurants in the Lake Buena Vista area.
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. It will also convert the existing Daryl Carter Parkway overpass to a Diverging Diamond Interchange. Right-of-way acquisition is underway.
The project will reconfigure the Interstate 4 (I-4) interchange with Apopka Vineland Road (State Road 535). Westbound I-4 general use lanes will be elevated in this area, to make room for Express Lanes and the corridor reserved for future rail projects. A new collector-distributor road will connect westbound I-4 to S.R. 535, so drivers entering this area will exit I-4 near the Beachline Expressway (S.R. 528) interchange.
The project will also reconfigure two intersections on S.R. 535: at Hotel Plaza Boulevard and Vineland Road. These two intersections will become Echelon Interchanges, which employ elevated lanes and reduced signal phases to improve mobility through the intersection.
The U.S. 27 and Interstate 4 (I-4) interchange is located at the western end of the project at an important interchange for freight traffic, tourism and a rapidly growing residential population.
The interchange is being redesigned to include two Echelon Interchanges where the highway meets the I-4 ramps, north and south of the interstate. These innovative interchanges will remove one traffic signal from each direction of U.S. 27 and also reduce the number of signal phases at the remaining lights.
Drivers wishing to use the Express Lanes for faster access to the metro Orlando area will have direct-connect access to and from U.S. 27.
Farther south, the project will elevate U.S. 27 over the intersection with Posner Boulevard/Home Run Boulevard. Dedicated ramps will give drivers on both north and southbound U.S. 27 access to Posner Boulevard.
Access from Posner Boulevard includes a dedicated lane that will merge onto southbound U.S. 27, while drivers wishing to head north will use an elevated Diamond Interchange U-turn adjacent to Ernie Caldwell Boulevard.
A new ramp will give drivers on westbound Ernie Caldwell Boulevard access to northbound U.S. 27.
The World Center Drive (State Road 536) and Interstate 4 (I-4) interchange provides a vital gateway to some of Central Florida’s biggest attractions. The interchange is getting many improvements.
Motorists will benefit from direct connect ramps to and from the Express Lanes in addition to a collector-distributor road adjacent to the roadway. The adjacent roadway will prevent weaving among traffic entering and exiting the interchange.
The interchange will be completely reconfigured as a Diverging Diamond Interchange. Full pedestrian sidewalks and bike lanes will be provided on both sides of the road at the new interchange and from the Dr. Martin Luther King Beltway/Kentucky Avenue intersection to Graves Avenue.
At the intersection of Graves Avenue and State Road 472, additional left and right turn lanes will be provided, along with lanes to let pedestrians and bicyclist move safely.
An extension to Rhode Island Avenue is being proposed that would run 1.25 miles from Veterans Memorial Parkway in Orange City to Normandy Boulevard in Deltona.
Designers also have proposed direct connect ramps from the Interstate (I-4) eastbound Express Lanes to the proposed Rhode Island Avenue overpass and from the proposed Rhode Island Avenue overpass to the I-4 westbound Express Lanes.
The Saxon Boulevard project will improve operations by removing the loop ramp from westbound I-4 to eastbound Saxon Boulevard and rerouting that traffic to a new signalized intersection at the end of the current ramp from westbound I-4 to eastbound Saxon Boulevard. This will allow for improvements to the ramp from eastbound Saxon Boulevard to westbound I-4. The eastbound I-4 to eastbound Saxon ramp also will be rebuilt. The new ramp will replace both the original ramp and the interim upgraded ramp.
The additional lane on eastbound Saxon Boulevard, which is being built to Finland Drive will be extended to Normandy Boulevard.
Plans call for widening of the Interstate 4 eastbound exit ramp to two lanes for the Dirksen Drive/Debary Avenue interchange. The I-4 eastbound loop off-ramp would be modified so that motorists can only turn right at the end of the ramp and head westbound on Dirksen Drive. A new ramp from eastbound I-4 would allow motorists to head eastbound on Dirksen Road/Debary Avenue. The general configuration of the rest of the interchange will remain the same. All ramps will be improved as part of the overall reconstruction. Also under consideration is a new park-and-ride lot located on a vacant parcel on the west side of the interchange.
U.S. 17-92 will be realigned and moved to the south with a new bridge over I-4. The existing bridges over Orange Boulevard and the SunRail tracks will be widened. Roundabouts will replace two existing traffic signals on old U.S. 17-92 (renamed West Seminole Boulevard) adjacent to I-4. The realignment of U.S. 17-92 will require the replacement of several spans of the U.S. 17-92 bridge over the St. Johns River.
County Road (C.R.) 46A will be converted to a Diverging Diamond interchange.
Left turns at the C.R. 46A/Rinehart Road intersection will be eliminated and replaced by two mid-block U-turns on Rinehart Road. This will reduce the number of signal phases at the intersection, which will allow more vehicles to travel through the intersection.
Lake Mary Boulevard interchange will undergo significant restructuring. The bridge will be completely rebuilt and the roadway will become a Diverging Diamond with additional ramps to connect I-4 to Lake Emma Road.
A general use lane will be built on eastbound Interstate 4 (I-4) from the end of I-4 Ultimate near State Road (S.R.) 434 in Longwood to west of Lake Mary Boulevard to accommodate traffic from the eastbound Express Lanes. Construction could begin as soon as the fall of 2019.
The overpass will be reconstructed and widened to allow for a 6-foot-wide sidewalk on the eastbound side of E.E. Williamson Road and a 10-foot-wide trail on the westbound side. Both directions of E.E. Williamson Road will also include will also include bike lanes that are 5 feet, 6 inches wide.
New support piers will be added to the bridge to lengthen the span, which will allow crews to build a new lane on Interstate 4 (I-4) below the bridge. The new lane will accommodate traffic from eastbound I-4 Express Lanes. Construction could begin as soon as 2019.
