In the 2004 U.S. presidential election, the I-4 corridor, a site of significant growth, was a focus of political activity within the swing state of Florida. Communities along the I-4 corridor were perceived by both major political parties as having higher proportions of undecided voters as compared to more Republican or Democratic-leaning portions of the state.

This road is very close to a true diagonal route. It goes further east-west than north-south, though it would probably still be even-numbered even if it didn't, given that it only intersects odd-numbered Interstates at right angles.
The bridge over the St. Johns River, originally a single four-lane span, replaced with two three-lane spans in 2003, is now named the Veterans Memorial Bridge.
When it was first built, it went into St. Petersburg, Florida over the Howard Frankland Bridge ; I-75 ended at Malfunction Junction in downtown Tampa. I-4 was truncated to Malfunction Junction in 1971, and at first I-75 was extended over the bridge, before that part became I-275.
Express toll lanes are currently being planned in the Orlando area. The current name for them is Xpress 400, numbered after the state road designation for I-4, SR 400 .
This is the lowest-numbered Interstate Highway; I-5 is the lowest-numbered north-south Interstate.
