Temporary Lane Closures along N Central Ave to begin November 1, 2021 for Water Main Replacements

Posted Date

A portion of N Central Avenue between E Hillsborough Ave and E Caracas St will be closed beginning on Monday, November 1, 2021 for water main replacements.  A City of Tampa contractor will be relocating the water mains along the east side of N Central Avenue between E Hillsborough Ave and E Caracas St with new and larger diameter water mains, improving water pressure and water quality as well as water service throughout the area.

During construction, N Central Avenue will intermittently close to northbound and southbound traffic. Traffic control devices will be in the area to redirect traffic during construction. Drivers should expect to experience some delays.

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

This work is part of a larger capital improvement project. While water main replacements are expected to be completed by December 2021, the entire construction project is not scheduled to be completed until March 2024.
