Work on the second major traffic shift for westbound Interstate 4 is planned overnight on Sunday, October 11, near the Formosa Avenue overpass. The long-term traffic pattern will relocate the westbound lanes to newly constructed temporary lanes, west of the existing travel lanes. The traffic shift is approximately one-third of a mile long. Weather permitting, the new traffic pattern will be open to drivers at 5 a.m. on Monday, October 12.

Motorists should be aware that modifications or extensions to this schedule may become necessary due to weather delays or other unforeseen conditions. Motorists are advised to maintain a safe speed when driving through the work zone. For more information, including an up-to-date list of lane and ramp closures, visit
