Two lanes in both directions of Interstate 4 between State Road 436 and S.R. 434 are closing nightly for nearly a week starting Sunday night.

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

In conjunction with these alternating closures, rolling roadblocks will occur on Sunday and Monday nights on westbound and eastbound I-4, respectively. The rolling roadblocks may occur any time between 12 a.m. and 5 a.m. to allow for a 30-minute window to facilitate girder placement.

Westbound and eastbound I-4 entrance ramps will be temporarily blocked. As the rolling roadblock passes each interchange, law enforcement officers will reopen its entrance ramp. 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 in Altamonte Springs. The construction is part of the I-4 Ultimate Improvement Project.

Also, motorists should expect closures this weekend on the westbound lanes of Central Parkway, east of the Douglas Avenue intersection, and the northbound lanes of Douglas Avenue, north of the Central Parkway intersection.

The continuous weekend closures will end 6 a.m. Monday.

Beginning Monday night and continuing until Thursday morning, these closures of Central Parkway and Douglas Avenue will occur nightly from 8 p.m. until 6 a.m.

The schedule may change due to weather delays or other unforeseen conditions. Motorists are advised to maintain a safe speed when driving through the work zone.
