Update #3: Lane Closure on North Florida Avenue Between East 26th Avenue and East Emily Street

Posted Date

The left outside northbound lane of North Florida Avenue is closed between East 26th Avenue and East Emily Street while the Tampa Water Department is returning to complete a more permanent restoration following earlier work to conduct scheduled maintenance on the water distribution system. 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 3 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.
