Drives need to watch for major shift this weekend on I-4 at SR 408 in Orlando

ORLANDO, Fla. — A major traffic shift is happening this weekend as part of the I-4 Ultimate project. And that means several closures are happening.

Two lanes of Interstate 4 eastbound between Gore and Colonial were closed Saturday night, as well as the eastbound State Road 408 on-ramp to I-4.

This is because starting Sunday, eastbound I-4 lanes between Gore and South streets will be moved into their final place.

This section never existed before the project began in 2015.

Officials said it’s the first time since the 1960s that 21 continuous miles of I-4 east will travel on a newly constructed roadway.
