Longwood, Fla. — Interstate 4 was shut down for the second time this month as heavy rain flooded the roadway near Longwood, Sunday.
FDOT said the problem stems from trash and debris getting caught in the drains during a heavy rainfall.
The contractor has agreed to pave the area around the drain in Longwood, to make it more effective.
State officials say a wire trap will also be installed on the inlet and the contractor agreed to check the drains more often.
They will also station a pump in the Longwood area as an added precaution.
Still, FDOT officials say they will continue to discuss accountability.
So far this year, parts of Interstate 4 have been underwater six times.
