Beginning at 9am today (07/17/2023), the outside westbound lane on West Hillsborough Avenue will be closed between North Lincoln Avenue and North Himes Avenue while the Tampa Water Department repairs a water main break. Barricades and signs will be located in the area to assist with traffic flow. All lanes will reopen to traffic by 4pm each day and then close again at 9am the following 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 4pm, Thursday, July 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.
