Traffic Cones / I-4 Ultimate Construction / Personal Injury and Civil Trial Attorneys / Orlando Oviedo Winter Springs Altamonte Sanford Lake Mary Lawyers / Beers and Gordon P.A.Remember when you got upset with traffic on I-4, all the time, trying to get from one exit to another in Downtown Orlando? Well, I-4 is still a mess of cones and construction signs, and as more people get back out on the roads, your frustration with traffic probably won’t get better anytime soon. But as you near the SR408 exchange, you may also notice that quite a lot has changed.

That’s because Governor DeSantis and the Florida Department of Transportation conceded that in the midst of our pandemic isolation, quieter roads meant the possibility of amping up construction times.

On April 11, Governor DeSantis and FDOT Secretary Kevin Thibault announced plans to open the I-4/S.R. 408 interchange by Independence Day, which was ahead of schedule. Since then, the department was able to further accelerate work by more than six weeks, opening four new I-4/S.R. 408 ramps along with the eastbound S.R. 408 ramp to westbound I-4.

And then today, an announcement was made that five new flyover ramps would be opening (a flyover ramp simply referring to an overpass). The hope, of course, for the governor, for the FDOT, and for anyone who drives through Central Florida, is that these new ramps will actually put a dent in the congestion and the travel times that so often hamper drivers from enjoying a comfortable and safe commute.
