Many roads near TIA may go new way

Wake up and turn off mental autopilot. Starting Tuesday, the roads near Tampa International Airport change again. Five new ramps will be open, the Florida Department of Transportation said. That might mean there's a new way to get where you're going. And of course, you can always read the signs. "On the first few days, as usual, there will probably be a bit of confusion," said John McShaffrey, DOT spokesman. "But it's been going really, really well, especially as of late. The changes we've been making are helping motorists."

• If you're going east on State Road 60/southbound Memorial Highway ...

... to Spruce Street, the exit will be back on the right side.

... to Cypress, there's a new exit leading to the west end of Cypress.

• If you're going to the Veterans Expressway ...

... from the George Bean Parkway, get in your right lane. The exit on the left side has switched. This will also take you to westbound SR 60/northbound Memorial Highway.

• If you're going toward Clearwater on westbound SR 60 ...

... merge left across the two westbound lanes of SR 60/northbound Memorial.

... from Cypress, there's new exit from the west end of Cypress.
