Beginning at 9pm tonight, the outside northbound lane on North Florida Avenue will close between East Hamilton Avenue and East Broad Street while the Tampa Water Department returns to complete a more permanent restoration following earlier work to repair a water main break. Barricades and signs will be located in the area to assist with rerouting and traffic flow. Please consider alternate routes and 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 by 5pm, Friday, May 14. The Tampa Water Department may need to return at a later date to complete additional work. An update will be provided at that time. Work schedules are contingent upon weather conditions. The staff and crews of the Tampa Water Department appreciate everyone's patience during this time.
