Beginning at 9pm tonight, the outside northbound lane on North Florida Avenue will close between East Bird Street and East Waters Avenue as the Tampa Water Department returns to complete a more permanent restoration following earlier work on the water distribution system. 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 Wednesday, February 16 at 5am. 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.
