Motorists traveling on Interstate 4 (I-4) this Memorial Day weekend will not have to contend with I-4 Ultimate construction closures.

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is suspending lane and ramp closures between 11:30 p.m. on Friday, May 25, and 11 p.m. on Monday, May 28. The suspension of closures will help minimize potential traffic delays during the busy travel weekend.

Existing work zones will remain in effect. Crews will continue to maintain travel lanes and conduct routine maintenance. Maintenance work may require nighttime lane closures.

Motorists are reminded to use caution while traveling through the I-4 Ultimate work zone. FDOT encourages drivers to allow extra travel time and to use extra caution in existing work zones. Drivers are urged to make sure they buckle up, along with their passengers. FDOT also asks drivers to obey speed limits, get adequate rest before traveling, avoid distractions and never drink and drive.
