I-4 Off-Ramp to Change from Left Exit to Right on Friday Morning

A traffic shift of eastbound Interstate 4 (I-4) between Sand Lake Road (S.R. 482) and Grand National Drive opens the morning of Friday, December 22, allowing motorists to exit I-4 to northbound Kirkman Road (S.R. 435) on the right, not the left.

The traffic shift will move the eastbound I-4 lanes, between Sand Lake Road and Grand National Drive, adjacent to the westbound I-4 travel lanes. The most noticeable difference for motorists will be Exit 75B to northbound Kirkman Road moves to the right side of the I-4. The exit to Universal Boulevard (Exit 75A) remains in the same location.

Progress around the I-4 and Kirkman Road interchange this year has been significant. The new Grand National Drive overpass opened to motorists in early August. The new westbound I-4 exit ramp to southbound Kirkman Road was ready for use in October, and the southbound Kirkman Road bridge over I-4 opened in March.

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.

I-4 Ultimate Project Limits Closures for Holidays

The Florida Department of Transportation reports that nighttime lane, ramp and road closures on the I-4 Ultimate project will scale down during the winter holidays.

The majority of construction closures on the interstate will be suspended from Midnight Saturday, December 24, until the morning of Tuesday, January 2. The I-4 Ultimate project, which extends 21 miles from west of Kirkman Road to east of State Road 434, will be open to holiday traffic; however, motorists should expect the following late-night closures:

  • On December 26–31, nightly closures of John Young Parkway (S.R. 423) under I-4 beginning each night at 11:30 p.m. and ending at 5:30 a.m. Access to all I-4 ramps at the interchange will remain open during the nighttime closure.
  • On December 27–30, nightly closures of Division Avenue from Gore Street to Anderson Street beginning each night at 10 p.m. and ending at 5 a.m. The westbound S.R. 408 on-ramp from Division Avenue will remain open during the nighttime closure. Motorists can access the ramp from Anderson Street.
  • Single lane closures after 11 p.m. on the eastbound Interstate 4 (I-4) exit and entrance ramps at State Road (S.R.) 436.
  • Right lane closures after 11 p.m. on eastbound and westbound S.R. 436 from the I-4 interchange to Northlake Boulevard.
  • Additional nighttime lane closures may be required on local roads near the I-4/S.R. 436 interchange, including Central Parkway, Douglas Avenue, Westmonte Drive and Wymore Road.

Although the majority of regularly scheduled I-4 Ultimate construction closures are not occurring over the holidays, existing work zones will remain in effect and crews will continue to maintain travel lanes and conduct routine maintenance. Maintenance work often requires nighttime lane closures, such as work on December 27-20 from 12 a.m. to 6 a.m. to replace reflective pavement markings on eastbound and westbound I-4 from Conroy Road to Ivanhoe Boulevard.

Motorists are reminded to use caution while traveling through work zones around barricades and equipment. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) encourages drivers to plan for additional travel time during the holidays. Drivers are urged to make sure they buckle up, along with their passengers. FDOT and other safety agencies also ask drivers to obey speed limits, get adequate rest before traveling, avoid distractions and never drink and drive.

FDOT advises drivers to slow down in construction zones; the life you save may be your own.

I-4 Off-Ramp to Michigan Street in Orlando Now Nearly a Mile Sooner

The Florida Department of Transportation reports that the westbound Interstate 4 exit ramp to Michigan Street will shift nearly one mile sooner the morning of December 12.

Traffic will exit westbound I-4 via a new lengthened ramp on the right. The ramp is connected to the existing westbound I-4 entrance ramp from Gore Street and State Road (S.R.) 408. Motorists seeking to enter westbound I-4 should prepare to merge with traffic to avoid continuing to the ramp to Michigan Street. The westbound I-4 entrance ramp from Kaley Avenue is unaffected by this ramp shift.

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.

New I-4 Exit Ramp in Orlando Coming in December

In November, Florida’s I-4 Ultimate project saw great construction progress in downtown Orlando. That same momentum is expected to continue through the month of December.

The westbound Interstate 4 (I-4) exit ramp to Michigan Street (exit 81A) will shift in early December. Motorists will have to make their decision to exit one mile sooner during their drive.

Traffic will exit westbound I-4 via a new lengthened ramp on the right. The ramp is connected to the existing westbound I-4 entrance ramp from Gore Street and State Road 408.

Motorists seeking to enter westbound I-4 will prepare to merge with traffic to avoid continuing on the ramp to Michigan Street. The westbound I-4 entrance ramp from Kaley Avenue is unaffected by this ramp shift. The ramp structure to Michigan Street is a permanent structure, and the shift is to help accommodate construction on westbound I-4. To discourage weaving on westbound I-4, the exit ramp to southbound Kirkman Road (exit 75B) joined with the exit ramp to northbound Kirkman Road (exit 75A) on the right side.

The Florida Department of Transportation reports that two lanes in both directions of Interstate 4 (I-4) between State Road (S.R.) 436 and S.R. 434 are closing nightly for nearly one week starting the night of Sunday, October 22.

The closures will alternate each night beginning Sunday evening with the westbound lanes. The westbound I-4 lane closures will begin at 8:30 p.m. and conclude at 6:00 a.m. On the nights for eastbound I-4 lane closures, they will begin at 9:30 p.m. and conclude at 7:00 a.m.

In conjunction with these alternating closures, rolling roadblocks will occur on Sunday and Monday nights on westbound and eastbound I-4, respectively.

In total, seven eastbound and four westbound I-4 entrance ramps will be temporarily closed during the rolling roadblock operations.

The nightly closures and rolling roadblocks are necessary to safely set steel girders over I-4 for the reconstruction of the Central Parkway overpass.
