Beginning at 9 a.m. today, the outside westbound lane on East Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard Avenue will close between North Florida and North Highland Avenues while the Tampa Water Department conducts scheduled maintenance on the water distribution system. Barricades and signs will be located in the area to assist with rerouting and traffic flow. Please consider alternate routes and use caution when driving in the area. Modifications to lane closures may be necessary during the course of the work.
The completion of the work with a return to normal traffic patterns is expected by 5 p.m., Friday, July 24. Work schedules are contingent upon weather conditions. The staff and crews of the Tampa Water Department appreciate everyone's patience during this time.
