Beginning at 9am today, the eastbound outer lane of East Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard will be closed between N 15th Street and N 17th Street while the Tampa Water Department performs road repairs associated with an earlier water main break. 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 4pm, Tuesday, April 11. 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.
