PI Update: New I-4 Ramps to Downtown Disney
A lot of internet chatter out there Tuesday about a Downtown Disney expansion that would double or even triple its size over the course of the next decade. We've reported on these rumors in the past and have mentioned that parking garages that would be a part of the expansion. Included in the rumor are proposed new ramps to/from I-4 that would funnel Downtown Disney traffic away from SR 535, SR 536 and Buena Vista Drive and directly to/from DTD. Someone posted this map today, showing how the existing I-4 westbound ramp to EPCOT Center Drive would split and direct traffic directly into the DTD complex. Likewise, a flyover ramp would join an existing ramp to take exiting traffic directly onto I-4 eastbound. No word yet when any of this is going to happen. Rumors still refer to a PI/DTD announcements in October. Thanks to Blog roving reporter Thommy for this update.
