Effective immediately, the inside westbound lane on W Kennedy Boulevard between S Willow Avenue and S Newport Avenue is closed while department crews begin emergency repairs to a wastewater mainline pipe. Motorists are advised to merge into the open westbound lanes.
Barricades and signage are on-site to assist with rerouting and traffic flow. The scheduled completion date for this repair, including restoration of the area, is close of business on Friday, May 7, weather permitting. Normal traffic patterns will then resume.
The City of Tampa recommends that motorists use alternative routes to avoid traffic congestion.
