Closure of exit ramp from northbound I-275 to Lois back on again

TAMPA — The on-again, off-again closure of a northbound Interstate 275 ramp is back on again — if the weather cooperates.

The northbound interstate exit ramp to Lois Avenue (40B) is set to close for 12 days starting at 8 p.m. Monday, according to the Florida Department of Transportation.

That's weather permitting, the agency said. The closure has twice before been called off before because of rains.

The DOT says the closure is needed in preparation for a major shift of the northbound I-275 lanes on or near July 13.

Near the end of the 12-day closure, there also will be a two-day closure of the northbound I-275 exit ramp to Dale Mabry Highway and an overnight closure of the West Shore Boulevard entrance ramp to northbound I-275, the DOT said.

Those dates have not yet been determined.
