New Interstate 4 (I-4) ramps to and from State Road (S.R.) 408 can start being visualized as tall supporting piers dot the landscape. However, to complete the series of piers needed for the westbound I-4 exit ramps to westbound and eastbound S.R. 408, several closures of Hughey Avenue are required.
The I-4 Ultimate project will close two of three travel lanes on Hughey Avenue between Church Street and South Street. Work will begin overnight Thursday, August 17 starting at 10 p.m. and is expected to be in place by 5 a.m. Friday, August 18. The two travel lanes on Hughey Avenue will remain closed for at least four weeks.
The open lane on Hughey Avenue will alternate as construction crews adjust the work zone throughout the four-week closure. South Street will still be accessible from Hughey Avenue. A map illustrating the area of lane closures on Hughey Avenue is available at: fdot.tips/Hughey.
Modifications or extensions to this schedule may become necessary due to weather delays or other unforeseen conditions. Motorists are advised to maintain a safe speed when driving through the work zone.
