The Florida Department of Transportation is opening a new overpass over Colonial Drive.
Additional testing of the new structure has been completed and it is ready to be opened to traffic with a scheduled opening date of Monday, January 7.
The bridge is part of a new on-ramp for traffic to merge onto eastbound I-4 from Garland Avenue at Amelia Street. To access the new ramp, motorists need to be in the right lane on Garland Avenue. The bridge opening allows for other work to continue in downtown Orlando, including demolition of the old on-ramp at Amelia Street, as well as work to construct eastbound lanes for the I-4 Ultimate mainline.
