Laurel Street bridge begins, road closure thru September

TAMPA, Fla. – A portion of Laurel Street, including the bridge, from North Boulevard to Doyle Carlton Drive will be closed starting Monday, May 2, and will reopen in early September as part of a Capital Improvement Project.

The City contractor will be replacing damaged steel structures and painting the Laurel Street bridge.

Pedestrians will not be able to walk over the Laurel Street bridge.  Pedestrians will need to use the Cass Street bridge to access between downtown and the west bank during the construction period.
