The eastbound Interstate 4 (I-4) exit to Amelia Street (Exit 83A) is shifting to a temporary configuration as soon as the morning of April 3, and will be in place for about 18 months.
The exit point from I-4 to the new temporary ramp is just past Amelia Street and will place motorists on a separate travel lane partitioned from Garland Avenue by a barrier wall. The temporary configuration of the ramp will require motorists to use a U-turn lane partitioned from Colonial Drive (State Road 50) by a barrier wall to access southbound Hughey Avenue.
The new configuration may require some motorists to alter their route to nearby areas. Motorists seeking to access other nearby areas may follow a new route.
This interim configuration is necessary to continue construction of the new eastbound I-4 travel lanes through downtown Orlando.
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.
Via @I4Ultimate: The EB I-4 exit ramp to Amelia St. (Exit 83A) is shifting as soon as early April. The new configuration may require some motorists to change their route to nearby areas. See below for alternate routes:
