Manhole Failure Requires Road Closure In Tampa

Tampa, Fla. (February 12, 2014) – A manhole cover on Bruce B. Downs Blvd. failed, requiring immediate repairs. While work is underway, the center southbound lane on Bruce B. Downs Blvd. between E. Fletcher Ave. and E. 132nd Ave will be closed.

Road restoration will take place immediately after the repair to the manhole has been completed, and normal traffic patterns will then resume. The center southbound lane along Bruce B. Downs is scheduled to be reopen by mid-morning tomorrow, February 13, 2014, weather permitting. The staff and crews of the Tampa Wastewater Department appreciate everyone’s patience during this time.
