S.R. 417 ramp to westbound S.R. 408 to close Tuesday overnight
ORLANDO, Fla. (FOX 35 WOFL) - The Central Florida Expressway Authority says that the northbound S.R. 417 ramp to westbound S.R. 408 will close overnight on Tuesday to move a crane.
The closure will take place from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. During this time, the Central Florida Expressway Authority says that drivers will be detoured to the S.R. 50/ Colonial Drive exit (exit 34). They will then re-enter southbound S.R. 417 to return to westbound S.R. 408.
Tolls at S.R. 50/Colonial Drive will reportedly be suspended during the detour.
The Central Florida Expressway Authority says that rolling roadblocks are scheduled on eastbound and westbound S.R. 408 approaching the S.R. 417 interchange. Each rolling roadblock will take about 30 minutes, they say.
This work is part of the $90.7 million S.R. 408/S.R. 417 Interchange Project. The project began in 2016 and is expected to be completed in fall 2019.
