The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is shifting eastbound Interstate 4 (I-4), stretching from South Street to Lee Road, to its permanent configuration as soon as 5 a.m. on Monday, June 24.
The temporary eastbound I-4 ramp system between Colonial Drive (State Road 50) and Lee Road (State Road 423) will be eliminated, restoring the traditional ramps. However, motorists should expect additional capacity on the temporary ramp system over the weekend in preparation for the shift. The eastbound exit to Amelia Street reopens and the eastbound exit to Colonial Drive will no longer require motorists to make a U-turn onto southbound Hughey Avenue.
With this shift, eight continuous miles of eastbound I-4 (from mile marker 82 to miler marker 90) will be set in their permanent configuration, marking significant completion on this part of the I-4 Ultimate project
Three nights of various closures, beginning as soon as 10 p.m. on Friday, June 21, are necessary to safely complete the eastbound I-4 shift.
