TRAFFIC IMPACT:

Portions of Northbound West Shore Blvd. between W Kennedy Blvd. and W. Gandy Blvd. will be completely closed to northbound traffic.

Please refer to the recommended detour map for Northbound West Shore Blvd.


"Similar to the work we did in March 2022, we are doing a series of complete road closures of Northbound West Shore Blvd. between Kennedy Blvd. and Gandy Blvd. because we need to keep our crews safe," said Brad Baird, Deputy Administrator of Infrastructure with the City of Tampa. "Fully closing northbound West Shore Boulevard also enables us to expedite the work and reopen the road much faster than other construction alternatives.”

Barricades and signs will be located in the area to assist with traffic flow.

Please use caution when driving in the area. Drivers should expect to experience some delays.

This Water Main Replacement project along West Shore Boulevard began on June 21, 2021 and is now entering the final phase of the construction project which includes resurfacing the roadway. A City of Tampa contractor will mill and resurface the northbound lane of West Shore Blvd. The resurfacing work will be completed in seven phases over three weeks, weather permitting.

A City of Tampa contractor has been replacing the water main along S. West Shore Blvd. with new water main, improving water pressure and water quality. This work is part of a larger capital improvement project and is part of the City’s PIPES Program with a goal of replacing 20 miles of water main every year. Creating a resilient infrastructure system is a key part of Mayor Jane Castor's Transforming Tampa's Tomorrow initiative.

Sidewalks within the work areas will remain open. Safety fencing at the work locations will be installed between the sidewalk and the work.
