FDOT is conducting this PD&E study to expand the limits of the I-4 Ultimate project. As you may already know, the I-4 Ultimate construction is scheduled to begin in fall/winter 2014. It will reconstruct the interstate as well as add four express lanes between Kirkman Road/SR 435 in Orange County and SR 434 in Seminole County.

This upcoming meeting focuses on the segment of I-4 from east of US 17/92 to east of SR 472 in Volusia County and provides interested persons an opportunity to express their views concerning the location, conceptual design, and social, economic, and environmental effects of the proposed improvements. The public workshop is scheduled for Thursday, April 24, 2014, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Deltona City Hall, located at 2345 Providence Blvd, Deltona, FL 32725. The meeting will be an open-house, with display boards and an automated presentation shown from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. FDOT staff and project team representatives will be available to answer questions and provide information as well.
