MAITLAND — Update to an earlier news release today. The first major traffic shift on I-4 Ultimate will be moved to early next week. Weather conditions are preventing the scheduled traffic shift due to standing water. The shift is planned, weather permitting, for early next week. A media alert will be sent to you.
The long-term traffic pattern will shift eastbound travel lanes on Maitland Boulevard, to the median, for approximately three-quarters of a mile between Gateway Drive and Keller Road, to allow for construction to begin on the roadway. When the shift does occur, it will be one of the first major traffic realignments of the I-4 Ultimate project. All of the work is planned during overnight hours, and the road will be ready for morning drivers using eastbound Maitland Boulevard, from the State Road 434 entrance ramp to the Keller Road intersection.
In addition to the traffic shift on Maitland Boulevard, temporary nighttime lane closures are scheduled on Keller Road and Maitland Summit Boulevard, near the intersections of Maitland Boulevard.
Overall project work in the Maitland area includes reconstructing the I-4 interchange, elevating Maitland Boulevard over surface streets west of the interchange through Maitland Summit Boulevard and building a pedestrian bridge over I-4.
Reporters and photographers who wish to get footage of this area can call David Parks, I-4 Ultimate Public Information, 844-858-4636; or Russ Handler I-4 Ultimate Officer Communications Coordinator for SGL Constructors, for an escort to the work zone. Personal protection equipment is required for this work zone.

The Florida Department of Transportation urges travelers to exercise caution and awareness when driving through construction zones. Also please buckle up, and don’t text and drive.
