A long-term detour on Grand National Drive will aid in the construction of a new Interstate 4 (I-4) overpass to serve the growing International Drive business community and the nearby attractions.

Grand National Drive from Fun Spot Way to West Oak Ridge Road is closing on Monday, July 6. The closure will continue until summer 2017. The detour for the closed section of Grand National Drive is:

  • Traveling north on Grand National Drive, begin detour by turning right on Fun Spot Way. Turn left on Adrianna Drive to proceed to end of detour at West Oak Ridge Road.
  • Traveling west on West Oak Ridge Road, begin detour by turning left on Adrianna Drive. Turn right on Fun Spot Way to proceed to end of detour at Grand National Drive.

When completed, the new overpass will connect Grand National Drive to Caravan Court and will feature Express Lane direct access in the eastbound direction from Grand National Drive and the westbound direction to Grand National Drive. Additional ramps will be constructed in anticipation of the future Express Lane extension west on I-4.

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is conducting door-to-door canvassing of the area to alert businesses of this closures and answer questions. In addition to detour signs and variable message signs in the areas, information on the long-term Grand National Drive detour is available on I4Ultimate.com and weekly construction alerts sent to more than 6,400 motorists who have signed up for the service online.
