So far, so good with Himes, Howard, Armenia avenues exit shift on I-275 south

TAMPA — Traffic was moving slowly, but not much slower than usual Thursday morning after the exits for Himes, Howard and Armenia avenues were moved on the southbound side of Interstate 275.

In an effort to shift southbound traffic between N Boulevard and Himes Avenue, the Florida Department of Transportation changed the exits from the right to the left side of the roadway.

The exit to Himes Avenue — Exit 41C — which for the last two years has been in the same area, will remain on the right side of the roadway, though the long off-ramp has been replaced by a shorter one, forcing drivers to exit much closer to Himes.

According to the state, about 11,500 drivers exit at Howard and Armenia avenues daily. About 5,000 use the Himes Avenue exit.

Information from Bay News 9 contributed to this report.
