Rolling roadblocks on eastbound Interstate 4 (I-4) from Kissimmee to southwest Orlando are scheduled from 12 a.m. to 5 a.m. each night beginning March 21 and may continue through March 31. No rolling roadblocks will occur Friday night, any time Saturday or during the day Sunday.
The eastbound I-4 entrance ramps from northbound Kirkman Road and Universal Boulevard will be closed from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night in conjunction with the rolling roadblocks to accommodate construction. Motorists will be detoured north, via Vineland Road, to the I-4 eastbound entrance from Conroy Road. See detour in attached handout or at the link below.
The eastbound I-4 rolling roadblocks will begin just north of State Road 535 (S. Apopka Vineland Road) and end at the Grand National Drive overpass just beyond the I-4/Kirkman Road interchange. The rolling roadblock and temporary closures of eastbound I-4 entrance ramps create a 30-minute window for crews to erect girders extending over I-4 at the new Grand National Drive overpass. Multiple rolling roadblocks are scheduled to occur each night.
As the rolling roadblock passes each interchange, law enforcement officers will reopen its entrance ramp. In total, four eastbound I-4 entrance ramps between State Road 535 and the Grand National Drive overpass will be temporarily closed during the rolling roadblocks.

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.
