Beginning at 9am today (09/11/2023), the westbound lane on East 21st Avenue will be closed between North 15th Street and North 16th Street while the Tampa Water Department repairs a water main break. Westbound traffic will be shifted to the center lane to maintain traffic flow in both directions. Barricades and signs will be located in the area to assist with traffic flow. All lanes will reopen to traffic by 5pm each night and then close again at 9am the following morning to complete the work. Please use caution when driving in the area. Modifications may be necessary during the course of the work.
The completion of the work with a return to normal traffic patterns is expected by 5pm, Wednesday, September 13. Work schedules are contingent upon weather conditions. The staff and crews of the Tampa Water Department appreciate everyone's patience during this time.
