Beginning at 9 am today (12/21/2023), the outside eastbound lane on East Columbus Drive will be closed between North 36th Street and North 38th Street while the Tampa Water Department repairs a water main break. Barricades and signs will be located in the area to assist with traffic flow. All lanes will reopen to traffic by 5pm and then close again the following morning at 9am to continue 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, Tuesday, December 26. Work 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.
