Reminder: Detours planned overnight for I-275 in Tampa

TAMPA — An overnight construction project will mean detours Tuesday night and Wednesday morning for all drivers on Interstate 275 near West Shore Boulevard.

The project to replace an overhead sign truss that spans all lanes of the interstate will mean the road will be closed near the West Shore exit between about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday and 5:30 a.m. Wednesday.

During that time, traffic approaching or coming off the Howard Frankland Bridge will be diverted off I-275.

While a six-hour window has been designated, transportation officials said the work may be completed earlier to minimize the effect on morning traffic.

Here are details of the detours, according to the Florida Department of Transportation:

• For northbound I-275: Use Exit 39A to eastbound State Road 60 (Kennedy Boulevard). Go east on Kennedy to West Shore Boulevard, then north on West Shore to the northbound I-275 entrance ramp.

• For southbound I-275: Use Exit 40A to West Shore Boulevard. Go north to Cypress Street. Go west on Cypress. Turn left to enter southbound I-275 after crossing under SR 60.

• For eastbound SR 60 to northbound I-275: Continue past the I-275 "loop" entrance ramp onto eastbound Kennedy Boulevard. Go north on West Shore Boulevard to the northbound I-275 entrance ramp.

• For southbound I-275 to westbound SR 60: Use Exit 40A to West Shore Boulevard. Go north on West Shore. Turn left onto Spruce Street and go west to the westbound SR 60 ramp next to Tampa International Airport.
