Get ready for a road closure, detours and traffic delays in Riverview.

The Florida Department of Transportation announced work on U.S. 301 will bring closed road lanes on the highway and shut down a portion of Bloomingdale Avenue.

The detours come as contractor Ajax Paving Industries of Florida begins replacing asphalt pavement with a durable concrete surface at the intersection of U.S. 301 and Progress Boulevard/Bloomingdale Avenue in Riverview. This intersection work begins Friday and is expected to take about 70 days to complete.

The first phase will reduce the number of travel lanes on U.S. 301 and close a section of Bloomingdale Avenue between U.S. 301 and Robert Tolle Road for 14 days depending on the weather.

During the closure, motorists will detour around the work zone on Providence Road, Gornto Lake Road, Lumsden Road, Boyette Road, and Bell Shoals Road.

Motorists should anticipate significant traffic delays and congestion on all nearby roads during the closure, the Department of Transportation said.

Other roads, including Duncan Road, Riverview Drive, S Kings Avenue, John Moore Road, and Bryan Road, may provide alternate routes if needed. Access to businesses, residents, and emergency vehicles remains available. Advanced warning signs and electronic message boards will used to assist motorists traveling through this area.

The $21.3 million project is repaving U.S. 301 between Lake St. Charles Boulevard and Progress Boulevard/Bloomingdale Avenue in Hillsborough County. In addition, the project is adding a sidewalk along the east side of U.S. 301 and widening the northbound I-75 on-ramp from U.S. 301. The project is expected to finish by early 2023.
