I-4/SR 559 Interchange (Auburndale):  Construction project: 

Detour – Eastbound I-4 CLOSED at the I-4/SR 559 Interchange, Exit 44:

At night overnight Tuesday, September 20 and Wednesday, September 21. Details below:

The contractor anticipates a temporary detour route at the I-4/SR 559 interchange at night/overnight Tuesday, September 20 and Wednesday, September 21 between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m. while crews work on the prevention wall on the northbound bridge over I-4. Signs direct eastbound I-4 traffic to exit at SR 559 (Exit 44), travel across SR 559, and enter the eastbound I-4 entrance ramp. Law enforcement officers will be present directing traffic. Expect delays.

Speeding fines double when workers are present. Project improvements include constructing a new bridge on SR 559 over I-4, expanding SR 559 from two lanes to four lanes from north of CR 559A to the westbound entrance ramp to I-4, shifting the eastbound lanes of I-4 to the south, installing lighting on SR 559, resurfacing the existing roadway, and improving drainage. Expected completion is early 2017. The contractor is Cone and Graham.
