TAMPA (FOX 13) - Heads up south Tampa drivers, a road closure will be changing up your route for the next couple of months.
The news applies to those who use West Shore Boulevard between West Bay Way and Beachway Drives.
Barricades went up Wednesday morning so crews can begin replacing utilities and draining culverts in the area.
The project is set to last until sometime in July.
The city recommends drivers plan for extra travel time and traffic as they consider the following alternates:
- Lois Avenue
- Dale Mabry Highway
- Manhattan Avenue
