FDOT and Law Enforcement Remind Drivers to Maintain Safe Speeds Throughout I-4 Ultimate Work Zones


Orlando — Safety is mission #1 and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is partnering with local law enforcement agencies to remind drivers to maintain safe speeds throughout the I-4 Ultimate work zone.

This includes enforcement efforts to protect public safety.

The posted speed limit ranges from 50-60 mph on Interstate 4 (I-4) through the I-4 Ultimate work zone. Changing traffic patterns, an increased number of workers on the project and – above all else – safety are just some of the factors that FDOT and law enforcement wants drivers to bear in mind while driving through the 21-mile work zone.

To date, there have been more than 150 traffic shifts on the project. Driving the speed limit ensures that motorists have ample time to adjust to new traffic patterns at a manageable speed to maneuver through the new configurations. This is for driver and work crew safety.

The I-4 Ultimate work zone also is more active than ever. There are 1,065 craft workers employed in addition to about 500 subcontractors. Maintaining a safe speed allows drivers to be more vigilant and decreases the risk of crashing through a work zone.

FDOT and law enforcement are increasing visibility for its safe speed campaign by:

·         Conducting additional traffic enforcement operations

·         Posting messaging on billboards

·         Airing radio public safety announcements

·         Tweeting weekly via @I4Ultimate

·         Providing shareable videos and social media content on I4Ultimate.com

Drive the speed limit. It’s courteous to yourself, other drivers and crews working in active construction zones.
