Work is scheduled to begin on Monday, November 4, 2013 and is anticipated to be complete in February 2014.

Phase II of the improvements consists of the construction of widened sidewalks and on street parking, new landscaping, and an added emphasis on integrating public art into the streetscape.

Phase I of the improvements was completed in August 2012 and stretched from Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park to Florida Avenue. The $760,000 investment will extend the improvements east to Marion St.

The City of Tampa recommends that motorists use alternate routes during this closure to avoid any potential traffic congestion. Westbound Zack Street traffic will be detoured at Morgan Street, and eastbound traffic will be detoured at Florida Avenue. Access to businesses will be maintained via local streets.
