Eastbound Interstate 4 (I-4) under State Road (S.R.) 408 is closing nightly from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. starting on Friday, August 12, through Monday, August 15, for bridge work.

The eastbound S.R. 408 exit ramp (Exit 10B) to eastbound I-4 is also closing from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. on August 12 through August 15.

The recommended detour around this eastbound I-4 closure is to exit at South Street (Exit 82B), travel north on Garland Avenue and reenter eastbound I-4 at the ramp located after the Amelia Street intersection.

Travelers should note the S.R. 50 eastbound on ramp to I-4 is also closed and is not a recommended alternative. Motorists looking to enter eastbound I-4 from Colonial Drive are advised to enter at the ramp from Garland Avenue.

Modifications or extensions to these 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.
