A part of downtown Tampa’s Channelside Drive will be closed for the next eight weeks while crews upgrade water pipes in the area. 

Repairs started Monday on Channelside Drive between Jefferson Street and Old Water Drive, the section right in front of Amalie Arena.

Downtown drivers are encouraged to avoid the area, or plan for extra travel time as detours are in place.
