Beginning at 9 am today, the southbound lane on Orient Rd between Illinois Drive and 22nd Avenue East will be closed while the Tampa Water Department conducts maintenance on the water distribution system. Barricades and flaggers will be located in the area to assist with rerouting and traffic flow. All lanes will reopen to traffic by 5 pm and then close again the following morning at 9 am to continue the work. 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 5 pm, Thursday, October 13. Work schedules are contingent upon weather conditions. The staff and crews of the Tampa Water Department appreciate everyone's patience during this time.
