Update #1: Lane Closures and Rerouting on West Columbus Drive and on North Highland Avenue
Beginning at 9 a.m. today, November 22, all travel lanes on portions of West Columbus Drive and portions of North Highland Avenue will be closed while the Tampa Water Department repairs a water main break that occurred during previously scheduled water distribution system maintenance. All travel lanes on West Columbus Drive will be closed between North Tampa Street and North Ola; all travel lanes on North Highland Avenue will be closed between West Keyes Avenue and West Columbus Drive. Barricades and signs will be located in the area to assist with rerouting and traffic flow. Please consider alternate routes and use caution when driving in the area. Modifications to lane closures 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 p.m. today, Friday, November 22. The Tampa Water Department will need to return at a later date to complete additional work. An update will be provided at that time. Repair and restoration schedules are contingent upon weather conditions. The staff and crews of the Tampa Water Department appreciate everyone's patience during this time.
