Beginning at 9 a.m. today the eastbound and westbound lanes on East Sligh Avenue will be closed between Orient Road and Harney Road while the Tampa Water Department returns to complete a more permanent restoration following earlier work on the water distribution system. Barricades and flaggers will be located in the area to assist with rerouting and traffic flow. Please use caution when driving in the area. Modifications to lane closures may be necessary during the course of the work.
Asphalt restoration is expected to be completed by 4 p.m. today at which time the road will be reopened for normal traffic flow. Restoration schedules are contingent upon weather conditions. The Tampa Water Department may need to return at a later date to complete additional work. An update will be provided at that time. The staff and crews of the Tampa Water Department appreciate everyone's patience during this time.
