The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will conduct four traffic pacing operations overnight on various lengths of Interstate 4 (I-4) from December 4 to December 6 in order to install overhead sign trusses.
During the operations, I-4 entrance ramps within the limits of the operation will be temporarily blocked by law enforcement officers to ensure no vehicles jump ahead of the traffic pacing operation. As the pace car passes each interchange, the corresponding entrance ramp onto I-4 will be reopened to allow motorists to enter and join the slow roll. The traffic pacing operation and temporary ramp closures will create a 30-minue window for crews to conduct work.
See below for more details and which ramps will be affected during each operation:
- Westbound I-4 traffic pacing operation from H.E. Thomas Jr. Parkway to the westbound I-4 rest area is scheduled as soon as midnight to 5 a.m. Friday, December 4. Please see this handout for more information.
- Westbound I-4 traffic pacing operation between State Road (S.R.) 434 and Fairbanks Avenue is scheduled as soon as midnight to 5 a.m. Friday, December 4. Please see this handout for more information.
- Eastbound I-4 traffic pacing operation between Florida’s Turnpike and Kaley Avenue is scheduled as soon as midnight to 5 a.m. the mornings of Saturday, December 5, and Sunday, December 6. Please see this handout for more information.
Modifications or extensions to these schedules 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 and are encouraged to follow @I4Ultimate on Twitter or visit I4Ultimate.com for updates.
