Join Hillsborough County, the City of Tampa, and the Tampa Downtown Partnership for a Community Information Open House Meeting on Wednesday, June 22 to discuss the upcoming closure of the Platt Street Bridge. The Open House will be from 4 p.m. - 6 p.m. in Rooms 13-15 at the Tampa Convention Center, 333 S. Franklin St.
At the Open House, citizens will be able to visit information stations to find alternate commuting options and to provide comment. Formal briefings will be provided at 4:30 p.m. and repeated at 5:30 p.m.
The Bridge closure is scheduled to start in October 2011 and is scheduled to last 105 days.

The full project is expected to be completed in the Spring of 2012.
