Beginning at 9 a.m. today, the center eastbound lane on West Columbus Drive will close between North Grady Avenue and North Dale Mabry Highway while the Tampa Water Department returns to complete a more permanent restoration following earlier work on the water distribution system. Eastbound traffic will be temporarily shifted to the outside lanes while this work is completed. 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 restoration is expected to be completed by 3 p.m. today at which time the road will be reopened for normal traffic flow. Restoration schedules are contingent upon weather conditions. The staff and crews of the Tampa Water Department appreciate everyone's patience during this time.
