Update #1: Lane Closures on North Nebraska Avenue Between East Sitka Street and East Bird Street

Posted Date

Beginning 8pm tonight, all northbound lanes as well as the northbound turning lane on North Nebraska Avenue will close between East Sitka Street and East Bird Street as the Tampa Water Department returns to complete a more permanent repair following earlier work to repair a water main break. Additional traffic impacts include:

Northbound traffic will be rerouted to the inside southbound lane.

East Bird Street will be closed to through traffic at the intersection of North Nebraska Avenue.


Barricades and signs will be located in the area to assist with rerouting and traffic flow. Please 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 to be completed by 3am, Friday, March 4. Repair and restoration schedules are contingent upon weather conditions. The staff and crews of the Tampa Water Department appreciate everyone's patience during this time.
