The barricades on the northbound lane on South Howard Avenue between West Bristol Avenue and West Swann Avenue have been removed to allow normal traffic patterns to resume for the weekend. The northbound lane will close again on Monday, March 14 at 9am so that the Water Department can complete a more permanent restoration following earlier work to repair a water main break.
Barricades and flaggers will be located in the area to assist with traffic flow. All lanes will reopen to traffic by 6pm and then close again the following morning at 9am to continue the work. Please use caution when driving in the area. Modifications may be necessary during the course of the work.
Restoration with a return to normal traffic patterns is now expected by 6pm, Tuesday, March 15. Work schedules are contingent upon weather conditions. The staff and crews of the Tampa Water Department appreciate everyone's patience during this time.
