John Young Parkway under I-4 will be closing nightly for construction starting tonight and heading through March 1.

Beginning around 10 p.m. Monday, Feb. 15, and continuing straight through Monday, March 1, both directions of John Young under I-4 will be closing for I-4 Ultimate-related construction work. John Young will reopen in the mornings at 5 a.m.

Drivers on John Young Parkway during those hours of the night will be detoured to Rio Grande Avenue by the closures.
