TAMPA, Fla. – UPDATE: The I-275 detours in Tampa’s Westshore area that were scheduled for Sunday and Monday nights (October 11 and 12) have been POSTPONED. We’ll post notice and send alerts when the work is rescheduled.

Northbound I-275 will be closed between SR 60 and West Shore Boulevard and southbound I-275 will be closed between West Shore Boulevard and SR 60 between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. Sunday and Monday nights (October 11 and 12), weather permitting. If needed, these closures and detours may be used Tuesday and/or Wednesday nights (October 13 and 14).

Both directions of I-275 will be detoured to Kennedy Boulevard to allow crews to install a sign structure and signs over all lanes of the interstate, west of West Shore Boulevard.

During the I-275 detours, the ramp from eastbound SR 60 onto northbound I-275 will also be closed. Drivers will need to access northbound I-275 from West Shore Boulevard or other interchanges east of West Shore Boulevard.
