Rolling roadblocks on eastbound Interstate 4 (I-4) from Kirkman Road (State Road 435) to State Road 408 (S.R. 408) are scheduled as soon as 12 a.m. until 6 a.m. for three consecutive nights beginning on Friday, March 31.
The eastbound I-4 exit ramp to South Street and eastbound S.R. 408 ramp to eastbound I-4 will be closed each night in conjunction with the rolling roadblocks to accommodate construction. The South Street exit will be closed as soon as 10 p.m. until 7 a.m. and the S.R. 408 ramp will be closed as soon as 12 a.m. until 6 a.m. Detour routes for both of these ramp closures are available online to download or view at: http://fdot.tips/EBI4rolling.
The eastbound I-4 rolling roadblocks will begin near Kirkman Road and end at S.R. 408. Multiple rolling roadblocks are scheduled to occur each night. Each rolling roadblock will create a 30-minute window for crews to place girders over eastbound I-4 to widen the S.R. 408 overpass.
Eastbound I-4 entrance ramps between the Kirkman Road and S.R. 408 interchanges will be temporarily blocked. As the rolling roadblock passes each interchange, law enforcement officers will reopen its entrance ramp. In total, nine eastbound I-4 entrance ramps will be temporarily closed during the rolling roadblocks.

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.
