Eastbound State Road 408 Exit Ramp to Orange Avenue Closing for Six Months

Long-term Closure Necessary to Rebuild Ramp and Widen Eastbound S.R. 408


ORLANDO, Fla. The eastbound State Road (S.R.) 408 exit ramp to Orange Avenue (Exit 10C) is closing as soon as 5 a.m. Monday, April 27, for approximately six months.

The closure is necessary to allow crews to demolish the current exit ramp to Orange Avenue and rebuild a new one to accommodate a wider eastbound S.R. 408.

Tolls will be suspended at the eastbound S.R. 408 exit to Mills Avenue (Exit 11B) during the closure. A non-signalized U-turn will be created on Mills Avenue under S.R. 408, which will allow drivers to use South Street to access downtown Orlando.

The temporary U-turn at Mills Avenue is not wide enough to accommodate trucks. An alternate route via Orange Blossom Trail (U.S. 441/17-92) (Exit 9) will be dedicated for trucks.

Additional overnight ramp closures in the area may be necessary to continue work at the S.R. 408 and I-4 interchange. Visit I-4 Ultimate's interactive map to view the most up-to-date construction alerts or to sign up for construction updates.

Motorists should maintain a safe speed when driving through the work zone, follow posted detour signs, and allow extra time to navigate the downtown area.

Modifications or extensions to these schedules may become necessary due to weather delays or other unforeseen conditions.
