Update #1—Traffic Impact for the Gasparilla Distance Classic: Full Road Closure on South Howard Avenue Between West Morrison Avenue and West Swann Avenue

Posted Date

South Howard Avenue remains closed between West Morrison Avenue and West Swann Avenue after an earlier water main break. The Water Department has repaired the break and remains on schedule to complete the associated road restoration work by 5pm, Saturday, February 26.

Although this closure is not along the race course for the Gasparilla Distance classic, residents that plan to attend the Gasparilla Distance Classic may want to add additional travel time to ensure adequate time for parking. Barricades and signs are located in the area to assist with traffic flow. Please use caution when driving in the area. Modifications may be necessary during the course of the work.

Work schedules are contingent upon weather conditions. The staff and crews of the Tampa Water Department appreciate everyone's patience during this time.
