Skanska has signed a USD 70 million contract with the Florida Department of Transportation to design and build a new interchange at State Road 557 of Interstate 4 in Polk City in Florida in USA. 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 State Road 557 traffic over the newly widened I-4 to accommodate future tolled express lanes and a high-speed rail corridor. The roadway project will be a major improvement to the traffic patterns and enhance motorist safety.

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.

Construction will begin September 2020, with the new bridge expected to open by 2023. Project completion is scheduled for July 2023.
