I-4 Traffic Actually Increases during “Ultimate” Construction

Orlando Sentinel checks the going on I-4, which is undergoing a $2.3 billion renovation and expansion, and reports that accidents and injuries declined while traffic actually increased. “The section of I-4 under construction handled about 19,000 more drivers per day, an increase of about 3 percent, in July this year compared with July 2015, reaching an average of about 665,000 per day,” according to the newspaper. The article also notes that toll roads recommended as I-4 alternate routes have seen increases in both traffic and revenue since the construction started.
