Due to more extensive repairs needed to complete this work, the outside northbound lane on North Himes Avenue will continue to remain closed between West Tampa Bay Boulevard and West Douglas Street while the Tampa Water Department conducts maintenance on the water distribution system. Barricades and signs are located in the area to assist with traffic flow. The lane will remain closed until 5pm, Friday, March 31, when it will reopen to traffic through the weekend, closing again on Monday, April 3, at 9am. Starting on Monday, April 3, the lane will reopen to traffic every night by 5pm, and then close again at 9am the following morning to continue work.
The completion of the work with a return to normal traffic patterns is now expected by 5pm, Tuesday, April 4. Work schedules are contingent upon weather conditions. The staff and crews of the Tampa Water Department appreciate everyone's patience during this time.
