About

This project will repave I-4 between 50th Street and McIntosh Road in eastern Hillsborough County. 

The project will be combined with project 430335-1 into a single construction project. This portion of the project will lengthen the I-75 ramps going onto eastbound I-4 to allow drivers more time and space to merge into the mainline travel lanes.

Construction is scheduled to begin in October 2018 and be complete in the summer of 2020. 

The majority of work on this project will be done during overnight hours - lane closures will be scheduled between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. for asphalt removal and paving.
