The traffic shift of the westbound Interstate 4 (I-4) travel lanes between Orange Blossom Trail (U.S. 17-92/441) and John Young Parkway has been rescheduled to open as soon as the morning of April 5.

The half-mile shift will straighten out westbound I-4 that had been temporarily moved several times to accommodate an assortment of construction activities. In this area, I-4 Ultimate crews have built the westbound I-4 travel lanes, an on-ramp from Orange Blossom Trail, an overpass bridge at Rio Grande Avenue and sound barrier walls.

To accommodate the traffic shift, motorists should expect westbound I-4 lane closures beginning as soon as 9 p.m. on April 4. The westbound I-4 on-ramp from Orange Blossom Trail and the westbound I-4 exit ramp to John Young Parkway are scheduled to close from 10 p.m. on April 4 until 5 a.m. the next morning.

The detour route for the closure of the westbound I-4 on-ramp from Orange Blossom Trail is to use the on-ramp from Kaley Avenue. The detour route for the closure of the westbound I-4 exit ramp to John Young Parkway (Exit 79) is use the exit ramp to Conroy Road (Exit 78).

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.
