Beginning at 9am today, the southbound lanes on South Jefferson Street will be closed between East Whiting Street and East Brorein Street while the Tampa Water Department conducts maintenance on the water distribution system. The inside northbound lane on South Jefferson Street will be converted into a southbound lane to maintain traffic flow in both directions. Barricades and signs will be located in the area to assist with rerouting and traffic flow. 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 4pm, Friday, February 9. 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.
