Skanska Selected for the $70.5M Reconstruction of Interstate 4 at SR 557 Interchange

LAKELAND, FL — Skanska announces it was selected to lead the reconstruction of Interstate 4 at State Road 557 interchange in Central Florida, a $70.5-million design build project on behalf of the Florida Department of Transportation. Construction is projected to begin in September 2020 and completion is slated for summer 2023.

The design and reconstruction will transform the interchange from an existing partial cloverleaf interchange configuration to a diamond interchange. A new bridge will be constructed to carry SR 557 traffic over the newly widened I-4 to accommodate future tolled express lanes and a high-speed rail corridor. The roadway project, designed by engineering firm DRMP, will be an improvement to the traffic patterns and enhance motorist safety.

“With Florida’s population steadily rising, the state’s infrastructure needs improvements to accommodate the pace of growth and increase motorist safety, particularly in the Central Florida region,” said Brian Stieritz, Executive Vice President of Southeast operations for Skanska USA Civil. “These roadway improvements along I-4 at the interchange will offer the more than 100,000 motorists who use this roadway daily a safer and more efficient driving experience for decades to come.”

Additionally, two new bridges will be constructed on I-4 to allow for wildlife crossings between the natural areas to the north and south of the project. Wildlife fencing will be provided along the I-4 limited access right-of-way line to channelize wildlife movement.
