A new traffic shift on westbound Interstate 4 (I-4) between Florida’s Turnpike and Kirkman Road (State Road 435) is scheduled to open the morning of Friday, December 9.

The traffic shift is approximately two-thirds of a mile long. The shift will move the westbound I-4 traffic lanes to newly paved lanes. As a result of the traffic shift, motorists wishing to exit westbound I-4 to northbound Kirkman Road (Exit 75 B) will need to exit about a quarter mile sooner. An illustration of the westbound I-4 traffic shift and realigned exit ramp is available online at

To accommodate the traffic shift, motorists should intermittent lane closures on westbound I-4. In addition, Florida’s Turnpike exit ramp (exit 259) to westbound I-4 will be closed from 10 p.m. on Thursday, December 8, until 5 a.m. on Friday, December 9. A detour for the ramp closure is available online at

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.
