Beginning at 9 a.m. today, all southbound lanes on North Himes Avenue will close between West Spruce and West Main Streets while the Tampa Water Department returns to complete a more permanent restoration following earlier work to repair a water main break. 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.
Restoration with a return to normal traffic patterns is expected to be completed by 5 p.m. today. 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.
