ORLANDO, Fla. – An apparent crack in the asphalt caused issues Thursday morning on I-4 in Orlando near State Road 408.

David Parks, a spokesperson for the I-4 Ultimate construction project, said in an email that the areas was resurfaced Wednesday night between State Road 408 and Anderson Street.

“(Thursday) morning crews identified the need for additional work. Out of an abundance of caution for motorists, we implemented a double lane closure around 8:30 a.m. to remove and replace additional asphalt. Crews are working to complete the repair and reopen all eastbound I-4 lanes this afternoon,” Parks said.

Video from Sky 6 shows what appears to be about a 10 to 15 foot crack.

Crews blocked the lane, reducing the flow of traffic to one lane.

I-4 was fully reopened around 11:15 a.m.
