Due to the upcoming expressway deck widening and re-surfacing project, the Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority is requiring the closure of the surface parking lots directly beneath the elevated expressway throughout the downtown area. Planned segments of this construction project are slated to begin as early as this month and continue through spring of 2013.

As a result of this temporary closure, the following surface lots used for downtown event parking will be taken out of service this week and continue through January 2012:

Crosstown Surface Lot #2 – 310 South Florida Avenue (between Florida and Morgan)
Crosstown Surface Lot #3 – 302 South Morgan Street
Crosstown Surface Lot #4 – 317 South Jefferson Street
Crosstown Surface Lot #5 – 114 South Jefferson Street

For alternative event parking options during this temporary closure, the Parking Division recommends the use of the following downtown parking surface lots and garages:

Remaining Crosstown surface lots (between S. Florida Avenue and S. Ashley Drive)
