If your commute takes you through Seminole County, there's a new lane shift on Interstate 4 (I-4) you need to know about.

Starting Tuesday morning, the eastbound exit for State Road 434 will now be a quarter-mile sooner.




That means it will appear soon after you pass Central Parkway in the I-4 eastbound lanes. 

This new section will create more than three miles of permanent travel lanes.

"Motorists are advised to maintain a safe speed when driving through the work zone," according to a press release.

Officials say the new lane configuration will be permanent.
