Beginning at 9 am today, the outside southbound lane on North Himes Avenue will be closed between West Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and West Ohio Avenue while the Tampa Water Department conducts maintenance on the water distribution system. Barricades and signs will be located in the area to assist with rerouting and traffic flow. All lanes will reopen to traffic by 5pm each day and close again at 9am the following morning to continue work.
The completion of the work with a return to normal traffic patterns is expected by 5 pm, Friday, March 24. Work schedules are contingent upon weather conditions. The staff and crews of the Tampa Water Department appreciate everyone's patience during this time.
