Orlando — I-4 Ultimate crews are scheduled on the morning of Saturday, July 28, to put in place a new traffic pattern that will permanently change the intersection of Wymore Road-Douglas Avenue and State Road (S.R.) 436.
The change means traffic will no longer be able to cross S.R. 436 between Wymore Road and Douglas Avenue. Wymore Road and Douglas Avenue will become right-in, right-out only from S.R. 436. Pedestrians and right-in and right-out traffic will still be guided by the existing traffic signal. Once the S.R. 436 interchange is completed and the pedestrian tunnel opened, the traffic signal at S.R. 436 and Wymore Road/Douglas Avenue will be removed to provide more capacity for vehicles accessing I-4 and to improve traffic flow.
Lanes on Westmonte Drive also will be added or widened to accommodate the additional volume of motorists using the roadway. Construction on these roadways began in 2017 in anticipation of motorists using this new traffic movement. The signals throughout these roadways will be adjusted and timed to accommodate the additional capacity.

Modifications or extensions to this schedule may become necessary due to weather delays or other unforeseen conditions. Motorists are advised to maintain a safe speed when driving through the work zone.
