Lane Closure on North Himes Avenue between River Cove Drive and West Kirby Street

Posted Date

Beginning at 10 am today (12/18/2023), the northbound lane on North Himes Ave will be closed between River Cove Drive and West Kirby Street while the Tampa Water Department repairs a water main break.  Barricades and flaggers will be located in the area to assist with rerouting and traffic flow. All lanes will reopen during the evenings, and close again at 9am each morning 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, Wednesday, December 20. 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.
