The interchange at Interstate 4 (I-4) and County Road (C.R.) 532 near ChampionsGate shifted into a diverging diamond interchange (DDI) traffic pattern in mid-July. The DDI has fewer traffic signal phases and allows motorists to turn left without crossing traffic, so improvements at the interchange are already noticeable. Work will continue at the interchange into the fall so that crews can add bicycle and pedestrian features, intelligent transportation system (ITS) technology, signage, signalization, curbs, and landscaping.
The above-updated video from the project provides a view of what the interchange looks like now and explains how the DDI functions and what drivers need to know in this type of traffic pattern.
