I-4 East

Update: The Florida Department of Transportation has delayed the I-4 detours to April 6 and 7. This schedule could change due to weather conditions.

Volusia County, FL – Tonight and tomorrow night the Florida Department of Transportation says you can expect detours for work on I-4 here. Lanes closures set for the area west of the US 92 ramp to the I-95 interchange.

Here’s what to expect:

The westbound lanes of I-4 will be closed overnight, from 9 p.m. Wednesday, March 30, to 5:30 a.m. Thursday, March 31, and overnight, from 9 p.m. Thursday, March 31, to 5:30 a.m. Friday, April 1.

Traffic will be detoured using US 92 and State Road (SR) 44. The eastbound lanes will be open, but drivers should expect delays as traffic is briefly stopped and slowed during two 30-minute intervals each night.

The lane closures are necessary for safety as cranes are used to remove two overhead sign structures, which span all lanes of the roadway. One structure will be removed each night.

Detours for westbound traffic will be marked. On March 30, traffic needing to access I-4 westbound will be directed along I-95 to the US 92 westbound exit. Traffic will proceed on US 92 west to the I-4 west on-ramp.

An alternative detour also will be posted that will take traffic from I-95 to SR 44 westbound to I-4.

On March 31, the detour changes slightly because the sign is located west of the US 92 on-ramp to I-4. On that night, traffic will be advised to use SR 44 to I-4 as the primary detour. An alternative is to take US 92 westbound to Kepler Road (CR 4101) southbound to SR 44 eastbound to I-4.

Police officers will be used to manage traffic flow at signalized intersections along the detour routes.

The work is weather permitting. Schedule updates can be found at www.cflroads.com.
