WINTER PARK, Fla. (FOX 35 ORLANDO) - The Florida Department of Transportation is shifting traffic on westbound Interstate 4 (I-4), between Fairbanks Avenue and Princeton Street, to the old eastbound I-4 lanes.
The could happen as early as Saturday, so crews can safely demolish and reconstruct the westbound lanes. This shift will also create a new westbound I-4 ramp system, parallel to mainline I-4.
This changes westbound I-4 access points at Fairbanks Avenue, Par Street and Princeton Street. Motorists looking to exit onto Princeton Street will need to exit nearly a mile and a half sooner than the previous configuration.
The $2.3 billion I-4 Ultimate project is reconstructing 21 miles of interstate from west of Kirkman Road to east of State Road 434 in Longwood.
