Lane Closures on North Himes Avenue Between West Chestnut and West Walnut Streets

Posted Date

Beginning at 9 a.m. today, inside southbound lanes on North Himes Avenue will close between West Chestnut and West Walnut Streets while the Tampa Water Department conducts scheduled maintenance on the water distribution system. Additionally, both turn lanes from West Spruce Street onto the northbound and southbound lanes of North Himes Avenue will also be closed. 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 1 p.m. today. Work schedules are contingent upon weather conditions. The staff and crews of the Tampa Water Department appreciate everyone's patience during this time.
