Beginning at 4pm today, the outside eastbound lane on East Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard has been closed between North 21st and North 22nd Streets while the Tampa Water Department repairs a water main break. Barricades and signs are located in the area to assist with traffic flow. Please use caution when driving in the area. Modifications may be necessary during the course of the work.
Completion of the work with a return to normal traffic patterns is expected by 4pm, Saturday, January 29. The Tampa Water Department may need to return at a later date to complete additional work. An update will be provided at that time. Work schedules are contingent upon weather conditions. The staff and crews of the Tampa Water Department appreciate everyone's patience during this time.
