The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is temporarily closing two lanes of eastbound State Road (S.R.) 408 at the Interstate 4 (I-4) interchange as soon as Wednesday, December 11. The center and right lanes between Division Avenue and Anderson Street are scheduled to close nightly December 11–15 from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.

The lane closures are necessary for demolition work in the area. Crews will be using a machine that creates a powerful stream of water to cut and remove concrete along eastbound S.R. 408. This work is accompanied by bright lights, loud equipment noise and backup alarms for safety.

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.
