Update #1: Traffic Closures on W Platt St between S Howard Ave and S Westland Ave

Posted Date

Beginning at 9am today, the eastbound bike lane along West Platt Street will be closed between South Howard Avenue and South Westland Avenue as the Tampa Water Department returns to complete a more permanent restoration following earlier work to repair a water main break. Nearby parking may be impacted. In addition, trucks will not be able to turn right onto West Platt Street from South Howard Avenue during this work. 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 5pm 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.
