Traffic shift on WB Maitland Blvd. scheduled for September 24
Roadway shifts to elevated lanes between Hope Rd. and Maitland Summit Blvd.
ORLANDO — Westbound Maitland Boulevard (State Road 414) is shifting to its final configuration on a newly constructed elevated roadway by the morning commute on Monday, September 25.
The westbound Maitland Boulevard shift will affect traffic patterns at the Interstate 4 (I-4) interchange and intersections of Hope Road, Lake Destiny Road, Keller Road and Maitland Summit Boulevard. The new configuration eliminates traffic signals on the elevated stretch of westbound Maitland Boulevard between I-4 and Maitland Summit Boulevard alleviating congestion. New access ramps from westbound Maitland Boulevard will provide access to Keller Road and Maitland Summit Boulevard. Other major changes in traffic patterns as part of the traffic shift include:
· From Maitland Avenue, westbound Maitland Boulevard motorists heading to westbound I-4 must be in the left lane. Westbound Maitland Boulevard motorists heading to eastbound I-4 or continuing on westbound Maitland Boulevard must be in the right lanes.
· A new traffic signal at intersection of Hope Road and westbound Maitland Boulevard will allow motorists from Hope Road to safely cross westbound Maitland Boulevard to proceed to the westbound I-4 on-ramp.
· The eastbound I-4 exit to westbound Maitland Boulevard (Exit 90B) will shift to a new ramp. The exit point on eastbound I-4 is approximately one-tenth of a mile sooner.
· The traffic signal at the end of the westbound I-4 exit ramp to westbound Maitland Boulevard (Exit 90B) will be removed and the ramp will be free flowing onto the new westbound Maitland Boulevard.
