change, the i-4/408 interchange. we're closing the westbound entrance ramp of the 408 which comes off lucerne circle and moving it over to division. >> reporter: drivers will still be able to get on to the 408 west in the area but access has now been moved to the other side of i-4. officials explained the reason for moving the ramp is to create space to demolish the existing one and to eventually reconstruct the i-4/408 interchange. they know the ramp is well used downtown and do expect drivers may need a day or two to get used to the changes. >> that's why it's important to make sure everyone knows and they're prepared. this is just another one of those major changes that drivers really need to be prepared for. >> reporter: here's what you do. if you're used to getting on the 408 west coming southbound from orange avenue or northbound on rosalyn, use south street, then turn left on to division. there will be detour signs. coming north on orange, you turn on to gore street and then right
