The eastbound Interstate 4 (I-4) on-ramp from Universal Boulevard will close for five months, beginning around 2 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 19.
A detour map is available to view or download online at: fdot.tips/universal. The detour for this on-going closure is to use the eastbound I-4 on-ramp from Kirkman Road (State Road 435).
The closure of the eastbound I-4 on-ramp from Universal Boulevard allows construction crews to continue building the new I-4 and Kirkman Road interchange. A lot of work already has been completed on the west side of the interchange, including new westbound I-4 exit ramps to southbound and northbound Kirkman Road. Crews are focusing on improvements planned for the east side of the interchange. Closing the Universal Boulevard on-ramp will help crew members work safely and allow the work to move ahead efficiently.
Modifications or extensions to this schedule may become necessary due to weather delays or other unforeseen conditions. Motorists are advised to maintain a safe speed when driving through the work zone.
