Beginning at 11 a.m. today, the inside southbound lane of North Himes Avenue will be closed between West Columbus Drive and West Beach Street while the Tampa Water Department repairs a water main break. Additionally, the northbound turn lane of North Himes Avenue that leads to the westbound lane of West Columbus Drive will also be closed. Barricades and signs will be located in the area to assist with traffic flow. 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 5 p.m., Monday, December 21.
