ORLANDO, Fla. (Orlando Sentinel) — Officials say a section of Interstate 4 through downtown Orlando will be closed for about five days as part of a plan to speed up road construction during the coronavirus pandemic.

All but one westbound lane will be closed from Wednesday night through Monday morning as part of Gov. Ron DeSantis' plan to complete as many road construction projects as possible while people are still working from home during the virus outbreak.

It's part of the I-4 Ultimate construction project, which is adding toll lanes to 21 miles of the interstate from Seminole County, through Orlando and to west of Florida's Turnpike in Orange County.
