The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will temporarily close the westbound Interstate 4 (I-4) rest area before State Road (S.R.) 434 for a few hours.

The temporary closure will begin as soon as midnight Wednesday, September 16, and end by 4 a.m. the following morning. The closure is so crews can safely move material.

During this time, the entrance ramp to the westbound I-4 rest area will be closed. Motorists, please note that if parked at the rest area after 11 p.m., a police officer will need to assist you if you wish to exit prior to 4 a.m.

Please view or download this handout for more information.

Modifications or extensions to this schedule may be necessary because of weather delays or other unforeseen conditions. Motorists are advised to maintain a safe speed when driving through the work zone.
