Motorists will have to detour around the work zone by continuing south on I-275, exiting the interstate at Jefferson Street (Exit 45A), keeping left at the fork, turning left onto Scott Street, and re-entering the interstate using the eastbound I-4 entrance ramp.
Advanced warning signs and electronic message boards will assist motorists traveling through the area.
