Closure of S Franklin Street Extended to June 7

Posted Date

The closure on S Franklin Street, north of Water Street, has been extended to Friday, June 7. Originally scheduled to reopen on May 27, the extension is needed to complete restoration of the area. The areas impacted by this closure remain unchanged. Northbound traffic on Franklin Street will be detoured to Water Street and then to Florida Avenue. Southbound traffic on Franklin Street will be detoured at Channelside Drive to Florida Avenue, then west along Water Street. Motorists are advised to consider alternate routes and use caution when driving in the area.

The staff and crews of the Wastewater Department, and our contractor, appreciate your patience as we begin completion on the final phase of this multi-year project. A high-resolution map of the work area and recommended detour routes is embedded below. Work schedules are contingent upon weather conditions. See all road closures at www.tampagov.net/RoadClosures
