I-4 Ultimate Project
Only four days after work on the I-4 Ultimate Project resumed following a safety review, three new workers on the project were injured in a separate construction accident. The initial shutdown took place in an attempt to investigate the death of a 59-year-old from SGL Constructors who was struck in the head by an enormous iron pipe. While the findings of this investigation are not currently known, the continuation of the construction project indicates that the investigators were satisfied that safety standards were being met and the work could therefore continue.
Those who take Interstate 4 on a daily basis know that the commute can be horrendous. Unfortunately, it’s about to get even worse, as work to overhaul the interstate from Longwood through downtown Orlando and into the Universal area begins next month. The reconstruction of 21 miles is planned to take a total of six years.
