Bridge work on Interstate 4 will cause road closures this weekend.

Watch out for the right lane on eastbound Fairbanks Avenue under I-4 and the west I-4 entrance ramp from Fairbanks Avenue. They will be closed from 10 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday, according to a press release from the Florida Department of Transportation.

Those driving on eastbound Fairbanks Avenue will have to turn right on Orlando Avenue, make a right onto Princeton Street, then get on westbound I-4.

In other I-4 news, WKMG reported that a construction accident during demolition work closed a lane of I-4 on Thursday night.
