Friday Traffic Update: Crashes, delays and heavy traffic


GOTHA, Fla. - The westbound lanes on the 408 Expressway have reopened after a fatal motorcycle crash early Friday morning, WFTV traffic reporter Racquel Asa said.

The crash happened in Gotha near the 408 westbound ramp to the Turnpike northbound.

Meanwhile in Orlando, a crash involving a tractor-trailer and three other cars on I-4 eastbound, approaching Kaley Avenue is causing heavy delays and one right lane is blocked.

The 3-mile delay begins at John Young parkway into downtown.

Asa advises drivers to exit on JYP northbound to Colonial Drive to get into downtown Orlando.
