Description

Episode 44 of RICHES Podcast Documentaries: The Construction of Inequality: Politics and Influence on I-4. RICHES Podcast Documentaries are short form narrative documentaries that explore Central Florida history and are locally produced. These podcasts can involve the participation or cooperation of local area partners.

Episode 44 examines the controversy over the construction of Interstate Highway 4 through and around Orlando and the unequal amount of influence exerted on the building of the road by different interest groups and parties involved. I-4 was one of the first Interstate Highways constructed in Florida, with its first section opening between Plant City and Lakeland in 1959. By 1962, the segment of I-4 connecting Tampa and Orlando was completed and the entire highway was completed by the late 1960s.

Abstract

This podcast examines the controversy over the construction of Interstate 4 through and around Orlando and the unequal amount of influence exerted on the building of the road by different interest groups and parties involved. The Orlando business district, the Parramore community, and the city of Winter Park each have a part in this story.
