    ORLANDO, Fla. - Both sides of busy State Route 408 will shut down this weekend in the heart of Orlando.

    Workers for the I-4 Ultimate project hope to make progress building a new interchange that will eventually connect SR-408 to I-4.

    The closures this weekend, which will mostly happen overnight, could impact tens of thousands of people visiting Camping World Stadium this weekend for high school football playoffs.
