Beginning today at 9am, the southbound lanes of North Himes Avenue will close between West Palmetto Street and West Pine Street as the Tampa Water Department continues to perform work on the distribution system as a result of a prior main break. Barricades and signs will be 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.
The completion of the work with a return to normal traffic patterns is expected by 5 pm, Friday, June 11. 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.
