Starting at 9 am on August 1, department crews will close N MacDill Ave between W Collins and W Heiter Streets to begin emergency repairs on a wastewater pipe and restore a cave-in. Barricades and signs will be located in the area to assist with traffic flow. Please use caution when driving in the area. Safe access will be maintained for residences and businesses in the area.
The completion of the repair and restoration of the road is expected by close of business on August 5, weather permitting. Normal traffic patterns will then resume. A hi-resolution detour map is embedded below. The City of Tampa recommends that motorists use the recommended detours to avoid traffic congestion.
