Beginning at 9am today, both northbound lanes of North Florida Avenue will be closed between East Henry Avenue and East Clifton Street while the Tampa Water Department returns to complete a more permanent restoration following earlier work to repair a water main break. The inside southbound lane of North Florida Avenue will be converted into a northbound lane at this time. Barricades and signs will be located in the area to assist with traffic flow. Please use caution when driving in the area. Modifications to lane closures may be necessary during the course of the work.
Road restoration activities are expected to be completed by 4pm today at which time the road will be reopened for normal traffic flow. The Tampa Water Department may need to return at a later date to complete additional work. An update will be provided at that time. Restoration schedules are contingent upon weather conditions. The staff and crews of the Tampa Water Department appreciate everyone's patience during this time.
