The westbound State Road (S.R.) 408 entrance ramp from Orange Avenue/Lucerne Circle is being temporarily relocated long term to Division Avenue, just south of Anderson Street.

The ramp relocation is scheduled to occur overnight on Thursday, March 17, and be ready for the morning commute on Friday. Relocating the ramp creates room for reconstruction of the Interstate 4 (I-4)/S.R. 408 interchange. The recommended detour to the new temporary ramp located on Division Avenue is to use South Street or Gore Street. For a detailed detour map, please see attached handout or see it online at I4Ultimate.com/SR408.

Work on the Interstate 4 (I-4)/S.R. 408 interchange started from the project onset. Much of the construction activity has been taking place at nearby bridges over Westmoreland Drive, Orange Blossom Trail and Tampa Avenue. The new temporary ramp is one of the first major impacts to S.R. 408 motorists.

Modifications or extensions to this schedule may become necessary due to weather delays or other unforeseen conditions. Motorists are advised to maintain a safe speed when driving through the work zone.
