Lane Closure on South 50th Street Between South 17th Avenue and South 21st Avenue

This notice is archived content and this information may no longer be accurate.

The southbound outside lane on South 50th Street is closed between South 17th Avenue and South 21st Avenue while the Water Department repairs a water main leak.  Barricades and signs are 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 restoration.


The repair work is expected to be completed by 9 p.m. this evening.  Roadway restoration with a return to normal traffic patterns is expected by midnight tomorrow, Wednesday, March 6.  The Water Department will return at a later date to complete the sidewalk restoration which will require a lane closure at that time and an updated press release will be issued. Restoration schedules are contingent upon weather conditions. The staff and crews of the Tampa Water Department appreciate everyone's patience during this time.
