TAMPA — Drivers exiting southbound Interstate 275 to Himes Avenue will find the ramp has moved — from a right-hand exit to a left-hand exit.
The temporary change for Exit 41C takes effect early Wednesday, according to the Florida Department of Transportation.
The change is due to construction and is expected to last until late 2014, when the exit will reopen as a right-lane ramp.
Directly under the interstate overpass, Himes Avenue will be closed around-the-clock between 7 p.m. Tuesday and 5 p.m. Friday.
Until it re-opens, drivers will be forced to turn left and go south on Himes after exiting southbound I-275. The suggested detour is to go south on Himes, turn right onto Cypress Street and go west, turn right onto Dale Mabry Highway and go north to Spruce street, then turn right and go east on Spruce to Himes.
Beginning late Friday afternoon, motorists will once again be able to go either direction on Himes after exiting southbound I-275.
