(PRESS RELEASE) MILAN, 4-Aug-2023 — /EuropaWire/ — Serving more than 150,000 vehicles per day, the interchange is a major access point to Walt Disney World, hotels, shopping outlets and resorts in the area.
Commissioned by the Florida Department of Transportation, the contract includes realigning the westbound I-4 entrance ramp from southbound Apopka-Vineland Road, building a new loop ramp from the road northbound to westbound I-4, lengthening the westbound I-4 exit ramp to Apopka-Vineland Road, and road resurfacing, along with other auxiliary works.
Lane will use recycled asphalt pavement, concrete, and steel in the latest example of the Group’s commitment to make the construction process as sustainable as possible.
Construction is scheduled to begin in 2024 once the design phase has been completed.
Lane has a significant presence in Florida. In April, it and a joint-venture partner became the preferred team in exclusivity for a project to modernise the Westshore Interchange (I-275/S.R. 60) in Tampa, Florida. Also in Tampa, it is widening a section of the I-275. In the greater Orlando area, it is completing the Poinciana Parkway. Also in Orlando, Lane is working on a beltway at the intersection of the I-4 and S.R. 417, as well as completing the Wekiva Parkway (S.R. 429).
