The design phase for the I-4 Beyond the Ultimate has initiated and is overlapping the PD&E phase. The design phase will take the conceptual plans from the PD&E process and develop them into a formal set of construction plans that will be used to bid and build the improvements. The I-4 design will consist of reconstructing I-4 (from US 27 to SR 435 (Kirkman Road) and from SR 434 to SR 472) to accommodate three (3) General Use Lanes (GUL), auxiliary lanes, two (2) Special Use Lanes (SUL) in the eastbound and westbound directions. Each of the design segments is depicted on the map below. Click on the segment boxes below to see more information on each of the design contracts.
