The Florida Department of Transportation's Design-Build Firm, Ajax Paving Industries of Florida, is installing Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) fiber for wrong-way detection at I-4 off-ramps at SR 33/CR 582 in Polk County.
In recent years, the Department has been installing these sites throughout the District as a safety measure to help prevent wrong-way events. These sites consist of a static sign and red flashing beacons that turn on when a motorist travels in the opposite direction of traffic which then sends an automated alert to the FDOT District 7 SunGuide Center communicating the actuation of a wrong-way event.
Intermittent nightly lane closures may occur from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m.
This project is expected to finish in the fall of 2019.
- There are no lane closures at this time.
