Beginning at 9am today, the eastbound lane on East Lake Avenue will be closed between North 9th Street and North 10th Street while the Tampa Water Department conducts maintenance on the water distribution system. During this time, eastbound traffic will be shifted into the westbound left turn lane. Barricades and signs will be located in the area to assist with rerouting and traffic flow. Please consider alternate routes and use caution when driving in the area. Modifications to lane closures 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, Thursday, March 30. Work schedules are contingent upon weather conditions. The staff and crews of the Tampa Water Department appreciate everyone's patience during this time.
