Volusia County – The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is advising motorists to be aware of an upcoming, eastbound, traffic shift on Interstate 4 (I-4) near DeLand. The FDOT and its contractor, The de Moya Group, are planning the overnight traffic shift on I-4 between State Road (SR) 44 and the US 92 Ramp for a distance of nearly 9 miles tonight, Wednesday, March 4, 2015.
All traffic will switch over to the new concrete lanes on the westbound side and a barrier wall will be erected to separate eastbound and westbound traffic. This temporary arrangement will allow work to occur on the eastbound side constructing three concrete travel lanes with asphalt shoulders.
A similar eastbound shift between the US 92 Ramp and I-95 is tentatively scheduled for Spring 2015, more details to follow.
Throughout this process overnight, and during future construction, message boards will be in place throughout the zone guiding drivers through the area. For the most up-to-date information on road and lane closures, go to www.cflroads.com and click on ‘Lane Closures’.
Times and dates could change based on weather conditions and other variables, updates will be provided if the schedule is modified.
The Florida Department of Transportation urges motorists to drive carefully in construction zones. All vehicle occupants should buckle up. Safety belts save lives.
