I was tasked with building the I-4 Beyond the Ultimate website. Since I’ve learned how to create custom WordPress themes, I thought the only thing I should do is to create my very own theme from scratch.
The entire site is custom and built by yours truely.

The purpose of this web app is to give the construction PIO’s for the I-4 Beyond the Ultimate project the ability to input their own construction alerts.
SGL, the construction company for the I-4 Ultimate Project, has had their own alert tracking software in which Global-5 — the company I currently work at — pulls the data from and sends emails and texts to subscribers.
I-4 Beyond needed the same functionality, so I built a more robust and user-friendly system.
Alert Conflict Map
The purpose of this interactive map is to give FDOT’s approval team the ability to see if any alerts, that occur during a defined time range, conflict with eachother.
Each alert will have a starting and ending date as well as a location and end location, that is defined by the team I work for.
You can see that the alert is drawn in a circle. This circle is drawn on whether or not the detour is directional or not. The team is responsible for setting the end of the detour to draw a circle from either the center or by using the coordinates as a diameter.
The alerts and their circles are then tested to see if they collide with one another. One alert at a time against all other alerts. This will help with detours that use exits that may be already closed.
As you can see above in the last image, the alert’s (grey icon on map) circle starts at the pin drop, and ends at the furthest point where the detour would go. Helping the user see the area affected by this detour.
This includes handouts, posters, poster boards, and other prints.
