Orange County – Motorists are advised that a traffic switch is planned Saturday, June 17 for both the westbound State Road (S.R.) 50 entrance ramp to Florida's Turnpike and the exit ramp from Florida’s Turnpike to westbound S.R. 50 in Ocoee. Starting at 7 p.m., the two new ramps will open and the temporary ramps will close and be removed.
