TAMPA — Interstate 275's northbound exit ramp to Lois Avenue will not close Friday night after all.
Earlier this week, the state Department of Transportation said the ramp would close for at least a week starting Wednesday. But heavy rains delayed that until at least Friday night. The DOT has now announced that it won't happen for the time being, but has not given a new target date for the closure.
Transportation officials said the closure is necessary for completing a major realignment of the mainline northbound interstate lanes.
