Because of Interstate 4 work being done in downtown Orlando, officials will close a portion of westbound I-4 between Colonial Drive and State Road 408 between midnight and 5 a.m. Tuesday.

That means certain on-ramps from downtown Orlando to I-4 westbound will need to be closed as well.

The on-ramps that will be closed from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. are:

  • Colonial Drive
  • Amelia Street
  • South Street

However, the ramps from Kaley Avenue and Gore Street will remain open.

Westbound I-4 motorists will be able to get as far as Colonial Drive before being forced off the interstate. From there, they can head to Orange Blossom Trail and travel southbound. Eventually, OBT will reconnect with I-4.

I-4 Ultimate officials also say that law enforcement will be monitoring each signaled intersection to promote traffic flow during the closure.

The construction taking place includes striping, replacing raised reflective markings, pavement repairs, drainage work and installing barrier walls.
