Update #1: Lane Closure on North 40th Street between East Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and East 28th Avenue

Posted Date

Due to more extensive repairs needed to complete this work, the outer southbound lane on North 40th Street will continue to remain closed between East Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and East 28th Avenue while the Tampa Water Department repairs a water main break. Barricades and signage are 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 repair work with a return to normal traffic patterns is now expected by 6 p.m., Friday, October 9, 2020. The Water Department may need to return at a later date to complete restoration work. Work schedules are contingent upon weather conditions. The staff and crews of the Tampa Water Department appreciate everyone's patience during this time.
