A New Traffic Pattern Now Open In The ChampionsGate

ChampionsGate Interchange Improvements

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is transforming the Interstate 4 (I-4) and County Road (C.R.) 532 interchange near ChampionsGate into a diverging diamond interchange (DDI). The new traffic pattern began at the interchange on July 10, 2022.

The FDOT said it should alleviate traffic congestion locally, as well as backups getting on and off the interstate.

“We have almost 64,000 drivers every single day that use this interchange,” said Dave Parks, FDOT spokesman.

The new traffic pattern is called a diverging diamond.

Traffic will now be able to pass through under I-4, allowing drivers access to I-4 westbound, as well as attractions that are on the other side. Park said the I-4 eastbound on-ramp will be situated in the same place.

The new interchange pattern is not the only thing coming to I-4 at ChampionsGate.

Additionally, the plan includes a widening of the ramps on and off of I-4. Currently, there are only two lanes for the ramps, but they will double to four lanes. Work is expected to be finished in early 2023.
