Tampa, Florida -- Southbound I-275 will close Saturday and Sunday from 12:30 a.m. to 4:30 a.m. from Ashley Drive to Armenia Avenue.

The Florida Department of Transportation recommends that drivers detour through downtown by going south on Ashley Drive, west on Kennedy Blvd., then north on Howard Avenue to access I-275 by way of Armenia Ave.

The total expected delay is 15 minutes.

Another option is to exit at Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. then travel west to access Armenia Avenue or Dale Mabry Highway. For drivers trying to bypass downtown, this will be a faster option despite traffic signals.
