UPDATE - South Himes Avenue will be closed between West Bay and West Ohio Avenues beginning 9 a.m. tomorrow

This notice is archived content and this information may no longer be accurate.
The leak on Himes Avenue between West Bay and West Ohio Avenues is small enough that Himes will not be closed until 9 a.m. tomorrow, after the morning rush hour. Barricades and signs will be located in the area to assist with detours and traffic flow. Drivers should seek alternate routes during this period. Please use caution when traveling in the area.

As previously reported, the repair work is expected to be completed by 4 p.m. tomorrow. Restoration is expected to be completed with a return to routine traffic patterns by 4 p.m. Thursday, August 7, weather conditions permitting.

The staff and crews of the Tampa Water Department appreciate everyone's patience during this time.
