If you use Hughey Avenue in downtown Orlando — especially to merge onto Interstate 4 westbound — there's a lane closure you need to know about.

  • 2 lanes of Hughey Avenue to close for I-4 Ultimate project
  • Crews need to install a series of piers for I-4
  • Closure will begin 10 p.m. Thursday, last for 4 weeks

Starting at 10 p.m. Thursday, two of three lanes of Hughey Avenue by the Amway Center will be closed for the next four weeks.

Construction crews need to complete a series of piers for the "I-4 Ultimate" project.

The closure will take place between Church and South streets.

Even though a lane of Hughey will remain open, you may want to consider using Division Street to South Street as a more free-flowing route, especially during peak times in the morning and afternoon.

In mid-September, a full closure of Hughey will take place in that same area that will last as long as 18 months.
