Meanwhile, drivers will also notice closures in Downtown Tampa. The left lane of Channelside Drive will be closed between Florida Avenue and Jefferson Street. It’s the first phase of a project that will pave the way for new development between the Channel District and Downtown Tampa.

Tampa officials announced in August residents and commuters should expect construction for the next 18 – 24 months.
