Flood Warning issued October 1 at 10:09AM EDT expiring October 4 at 2:00AM EDT in effect for: Sarasota
The exit ramp to Lois Avenue from northbound I-275 is closed, and will not be open for 12 days, according to the Florida Department of Transportation.
DETOUR: Use Exit 39A to Kennedy Boulevard to access areas west of Dale Mabry Highway, or use the Dale Mabry (Exit 41A) or Armenia Avenue (Exit 42) exits for areas east of Dale Mabry.
The closure is required as part of FDOT's $215.4 million project to rebuild and widen I-275 from east of State Road 60 to the Hillsborough River in downtown Tampa. This project is reconstructing all of the southbound interstate in that area, as well as northbound I-275 from east of State Road 60 to Himes Avenue. Northbound I-275 was rebuilt from Himes Avenue to downtown in a project that was completed in April 2010.
