I-4 Express lanes opening this weekend

I-4 Express will open to the public this weekend.

The Florida Department of Transportation announced the opening of the managed lanes, known locally as I-4 Express, to motorists on Saturday, February 26.

According to a press release from FDOT, crews will begin opening access points of I-4 Express early Saturday morning. All eastbound and westbound lanes of I-4 Express are anticipated to be open to traffic as soon as 10 a.m. that morning.

I-4 Express will open with an introductory rate of 50 cents per tolling segment. Traveling the entire length of I-4 Express will cost $3.50 eastbound and $3.00 westbound during the introductory period. Following the introductory rate, toll pricing will be adjusted based on traffic volumes in I-4 Express to manage congestion.

Pricing will not be a fixed rate and will vary based on the number of vehicles using I-4 Express.

The current toll rate will be displayed on overhead electronic signs in advance of each entrance. Nonstop electronic tolling will enable motorists to pay using an active, properly mounted SunPass or other Florida-accepted transponders. No cash or TOLL-BY-PLATE option will be available.

Currently, unauthorized vehicles are not permitted in I-4 Express while crews remain active in the managed lanes to make final adjustments in preparation for this weekend’s opening.

I-4 Express extends from just west of Kirkman Road (State Road 435) in Orange County to just east of S.R. 434 in Seminole County and is separated from traffic by a concrete barrier wall with limited access points to support longer trips.
