Tampa, Florida -- June 20UPDATE: Due to weather conditions and changed work plans, the northbound I-275 exit ramp to Lois Avenue (Exit 40B) will NOT close tonight, Friday, June 20 as previously scheduled.
A new closure will likely be announced Monday.
When the ramp does close, it is estimated it will be closed for about seven days.
DETOUR: Motorists are advised to use Exit 39A to Kennedy Boulevard to access areas west of Dale Mabry Highway, or use the Dale Mabry (Exit 41A) or Armenia Avenue (Exit 42) exits for areas east of Dale Mabry.
* The exact number of days the ramp will be closed is not known. The closure is needed in preparation for a major shift of the northbound I-275 mainline lanes near the end of the month. During that time, there will also be temporary (one to four days) closures of the West Shore Boulevard entrance ramp to northbound I-275 and the northbound I-275 exit ramp to Dale Mabry Highway. Dates for these closures will be determined by construction progress and will be released to the public as soon as they are known.
