TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Tampa residents and commuters should expect construction for the next 18 – 24 months. The work is causing lane closures, beginning Monday, Aug. 29.
Morgan Street will be closed between Brorein Street and Old Water Street starting Monday. The closure is for “infrastructure and roadway improvements to support Tampa’s growing downtown and redevelopment,” officials said. The city has created a website to keep people informed about the construction and closures.
Morgan Street is scheduled to reopen fully in December 2016.
Starting Monday, Sept. 5 a lane of Channelside Drive will be closed. The lane on the north side of Channelside, between Morgan Street and Jefferson Street, is scheduled to be closed until the summer of 2017.

“The initial lane closures along Channelside Drive and Morgan Street mark the beginning of roadway and infrastructure improvements in the southern downtown area over the next 18-24 months. Traffic advisories will be sent out to notify the public of the construction impacts throughout the construction process,” officials said. “The improvements will help create a functional street grid through southern downtown, linking downtown’s Channel District with the Central Business District. The improved street grid includes wide sidewalks and enhanced lighting to become the foundation for the active streetscapes planned by the developer, Strategic Property Partners.”
