Extensive construction work on the Ultimate I-4 project is continuing in downtown Orlando as nightly closures of Church Street under Interstate 4 (I-4) are temporarily transitioning into a continuous closure.

The continuous closure of Church Street, under I-4 between Hughey Avenue and Garland Avenue, is scheduled for approximately 72 hours beginning at 6:30 a.m. on Sunday, November 1, and ending at 6 a.m. on Wednesday, November 4. Following the continuous closure, nightly closures of Church Street will continue from November 4-6 between 12 a.m. and 6 a.m.

During a three-week stint of nightly closures at Church Street between September and October, workers were able to remove portions of the previously closed I-4 entrance and exit ramps to South Street. The continuous closure will allow workers to safely remove the beams that supported the old roadway.

The detour for this closure is South Street for traffic approaching Church Street from the west side of I-4 and Central Boulevard for traffic approaching from the east side of I-4. During these closures, pedestrian access is also closed at Church Street under I-4. Pedestrians may cross under I-4 at Pine Street or South Street. For more information, log on to

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.
