Tampa, Clearwater commuters: Beware Wednesday lane shift

TAMPA — Expect traffic to slow heading from Tampa to Clearwater beginning Wednesday as workers move an exit ramp from one side of northbound Memorial Highway to the other.

The shift, which begins at 5:30 a.m., means drivers heading northbound on Memorial need to move to the right lanes to take the Courtney Campbell Parkway.

The triple-lane left exit that drivers have used for years to get on the parkway will be shut down for a few months while the lanes are reconstructed.

Also Wednesday, traffic on northbound Memorial will be shifted to what now is part of the highway's southbound lanes.
