Traffic Advisory: WB S.R. 408 On-Ramp Shifting to Orange Ave
Ramp from Division Avenue Closing Permanently
ORLANDO, Fla. The Florida Department of Transportation's (FDOT) I-4 Ultimate project is opening a new westbound State Road (S.R.) 408 on-ramp from Orange Avenue as early as Sunday, August 2nd. The ramp is relocating after being temporarily shifted to Division Avenue four years ago for the reconstruction of the I-4/S.R. 408 interchange. The temporary on-ramp from Division Avenue will permanently close.
Motorists traveling to westbound S.R. 408 from southbound Orange Avenue need to be in the right lane when traveling on southbound Orange Avenue and follow Lucerne Circle to access the new ramp. Please view or download this handout for more information.
Northbound Orange Avenue drivers should continue to Rosalind Avenue, then turn left onto Anderson Street and left onto southbound Orange Avenue and follow Lucerne Circle to the new ramp. Please view this route here.
The original on-ramp from Orange Avenue brought traffic onto mainline westbound S.R. 408 in the left lane. The new on-ramp from Orange Avenue allows motorists to join S.R. 408 from the right lane, making it easier to match highway speeds and merge into traffic.
As closures and detours continue, it is important for motorists to pay extra attention to signage, as familiar routes may have changed. Drivers should avoid distractions, adjust their speed, and allow plenty of extra time to navigate the I-4 Ultimate work zone.
Modifications or extensions to these schedules may become necessary due to weather delays or other unforeseen conditions. Motorists are encouraged to follow @I4Ultimate on Twitter or visit I4Ultimate.com for updates.
