The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is temporarily closing one lanes of eastbound State Road (S.R.) 408 at the Interstate 4 (I-4) interchange nightly from 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. as soon Saturday, September 19, to Saturday, September 26.

Additional work is expected through October.

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. Work also will include the use of work zone lighting, and noise and vibrations are anticipated at night during these times.

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.
