ORLANDO, Fla. – Though it’s not the most popular ramp, 3,000 drivers still take the Ivanhoe Boulevard exit at Interstate 4 westbound every day.

“That’s not a high number compared to other ramps but that’s 3,000 folks who rely on it,” said Steve Olson, spokesperson for the Florida Department of Transportation. 

Those drivers also rely on the exit to be safe, which is why hours after FDOT opened up the new exit ramp, it was shut down. 

“We have a team that does oversight of the construction and then that team was watching this and they just didn’t feel comfortable with what they were seeing,” Olson said.
